Turning the Book Wheel
A tumblr of semi-random stuff from the stacks of the Smithsonian Libraries
17 of August, 2013

In case you missed the news yesterday, a Smithsonian scientist has identified a new species, and most importantly it’s cute and fuzzy.*

Click through the image (Photo by Mark Gurney) to the press release OR go straight to the good stuff - the published paper stored in the Libraries’ Digital Repository (paper also available via the doi below, which connects you to the wonderfully open access journal ZooKeys.)

Running a permanent repository of publications and maintaining a bibliography of all published scholarly work by Smithsonian curators and researchers is just one of the many services offered by the Libraries to support our mission for the “increase and diffusion of knowledge.”

Helgen KM, Pinto CM, Kays R, Helgen LE, Tsuchiya MTN, Quinn A, Wilson DE, Maldonado JE (2013) Taxonomic revision of the olingos (Bassaricyon), with description of a new species, the Olinguito. ZooKeys 324: 1. doi: 10.3897/zookeys.324.5827

*sorry invertebrate lovers, you know people like the mammalia.
