The MCZ Ernst Mayr Library Artwork Collection is a publicly accessible database and retrieval system of digitized images, from holdings of the Library's Special Collections and Archives, produced in support of zoological research. Created under the auspices of Harvard's Library Digital Initiative, the first component of the Collection contains watercolors and drawings by Jacques Burkhardt, who was MCZ founder Louis Agassiz's personal and principal artist. The bulk of Burkhardt's artwork was produced on the Thayer Expedition to Brazil (1865-1866), led by Agassiz. The Collection can be accessed by taxonomic classification, common name, collection location, image creator, annotation-text keyword, and other fields.
