In February the Smithsonian Institution Libraries deposited the 10,000th publication in the Smithsonian Digital Repository, part of the Smithsonian Research Online program. This milestone was achieved with a collaborative paper by Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute researcher Ben Hirsch and the Smithsonian’s National Zoo geneticist Jesus Maldonado.

This online repository of digital publications by Smithsonian staff represents a broad review of work done by researchers at the Institution, collecting nearly 2,000 publications each year. The Smithsonian Research Online program consists of two basic components: a list of publications authored by Smithsonian researchers and affiliates, and a corresponding digital repository that contains the article or chapter in electronic form. The electronic versions of peer-reviewed, scholarly journal articles are available to the worldwide research community because of indexing and search capabilities provided by the Repository in conjunction with scientific Web portals.
