Participate in BioLib

BioLib offers many ways to get involved in expanding and updating its content. Some features such as comments or identifying photos can be used without need of creating and user account, but registration will increase the credibility of data that you are adding. Unlike other systems such as Wikipedia users are not directly changing content of BioLib but the added data is added as "unconfirmed" and our administrators review it first before accepting it among verified data.

For professional community

If you specialize on any group of organisms and would like to help improve BioLib with your experience, please contact us at the address biolib(at) or ondrej.zicha(at) We are looking for taxonomic system administrators and gallery managers and we are looking for reliable materials to expand, check and update BioLib content. We can perform bulk image uploads, compare listings of valid taxa with taxa in BioLib automatically, import scientific synonyms, vernacular names or checklist data etc. including source citations.
