BRC hosts websites for a number of recording schemes and projects. During the last year there has been a particular focus on development support for two of these:
- We have been working with coleopterists representing the beetle recording schemes on a refresh of the UK Beetle Recording website. This provides a home for 19 individual Coleoptera recording schemes, and each scheme organiser is now able to update their pages as they wish. We have many new features such as a helpful guide to beetle families by Mark Gurney, and extended library of beetle images (thanks to Lech Borowiec for making his photos available for use), twitter feeds for a number of the schemes, and information on The Coleopterist journal, which now has its home within the UK Beetle Recording site.
- BRC is currently developing a new website on behalf of the Dipterists Forum, and this will be available for use later in the year. It will provide a new online home for the society, including online subscriptions and links to recording schemes and resources.
A list of the recording scheme and society websites that are either hosted by BRC or for which BRC provided support for the development of the website can be found here.
