With financial assistance from the Virginia Society of Ornithology, the Center for Conservation Biology has completed a digital library of all issues of The Raven. The digital library includes text-searchable, pdf versions of 76 volumes of The Raven from 1930 through 2005. This includes 510 individual issues and a total of 7,037 text pages.
The Raven is more than the scientific journal of the Virginia Society of Ornithology, it chronicles the birds of the state, what is known about these birds and the history of the organization from its beginnings in 1930 to the present. It is our hope that this fantastic resource will lead to greater exploration and protection of birds in our region.
