Some open access malacological publications

These have come to my attention recently.

Volumes 9 thru 117 of The Nautilus (except vol. 89):
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/bibliography/6170

The Conchologists’ Exchange (1886-1888) was the former's predecessor:
http://www.shellmuseum.org/Nautilus/nautilus_contents2.html

Leslie Hubricht's "The distributions of the native land mollusks of the Eastern United States", Fieldiana. Zoology, new ser., no. 24 (1985):
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/bibliography/3329

The entire Manual of Conchology, volumes 1 thru 28:
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/bibliography/6534

The mollusk papers that were published in the Occasional Papers of the Museum of Zoology, University of Michigan:
http://www.ummz.umich.edu/mollusks/publications/occpapers-mollusk.html

The mollusk papers that were published in the Miscellaneous Publications of the Museum of Zoology, University of Michigan:
http://www.ummz.umich.edu/mollusks/publications/misc-pubs.html

Folia Malacologica (quarterly journal of the Association of Polish Malacologists):
http://www.foliamalacologica.com/index.php
Open access for 2000-present; you still need to register and establish an “account”.

Ruthenica, Russian Malacological Journal:
http://www.ruthenica.com/categorie-3.html
They became open access in 2008. Papers are in Russian or English.

Hopefully, some of the other long-running malacological publications, including the Journal of Conchology, the Proceedings of the Malacological Society, etc., will follow suit and make their old issues open access.

Aydin,

All of the publications from the American Museum of Natural History are also digitalized.

I'm sure there are other on-lines literature resources and hopefully, others will mention them.
