Agree on Reichenbach.
Reichenbach HGL. 1848. Synopsis avium. Ornithologie méthodique, concernant les genres et les espèces des oiseaux de toutes les parties du monde. Nr. III. Gallinaceae. F Hofmeister, Leipzig. [here]
(The accompanying text is lacking in the BHL copy.)

Sitzungsberichte und Abhandlungen Naturwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Isis in Dresden ... cannot be found in the BHL (not by me anyway).

Incl. for example the OD of Grey Friarbird Philemon kisserensis MEYER 1884.

But fully accessible here.

Ornithologischer Anzeiger ...

Ornithologischer Anzeiger (Anzeiger der ornithologischen Gesellschaft Bayerns) ... from 1919 to date (here).

BHL (Biodiversity Heritage Library) only have 1919 until 1922 (No. 1-7, in one volume) ...

Enjoy!

The Biodiversity Library of Southeast Asia (BLSEA), managed by the National University of Singapore, holds stacks of books that could be of interest.

BHL (Biodiversity Heritage Library) take the concept of Biodiversity to a whole New Level!

Recent additions (added: 07/29/2018):
• Air cleaner - oil bath type diesel engines (here)
• Chevrolet vehicles equipped with Rochester carburetors (here)
• Wheel and tire balancing (here)
... etc., etc.

(added: 07/22/2018)
• How to inspect ball joint suspensions (here)
• Heavy duty International Harvester engines (here)
• Chainsaw maintenance (here)
... and onwards.

Why?

US BLM Technical Notes - I'd guess they were given the entire series, and some of them will contain biodiversity-related details, but others don't. Presumably it's simpler to upload the lot, rather than have someone read through each one to see if it's relevant or not.

Rafinesque, Kentucky Gazette (n.s.) 1 (8): 3, 1822.

Publication of Chlidonias as a new genus. Can anyone locate a copy online, please? No joy in my search.
Would I be correct in guessing C. niger is the type species of his genus?
Thanks!

I've never seen the real thing (maybe some day [here]; currently they have nothing scanned from 1822). As Mark says, it was reprinted in Auk 29: 195-197.

The type is indeed Chlidonias melanops Rafinesque 1822, which is regarded as a synonym of Sterna surinamensis Gmelin 1789 (now Chlidonias niger surinamensis).

Thanks! Any reason why Gmelin's later 1889 name is used for the taxon now? Shouldn't it be Chlidonias niger melanops?

Can we find somewhere OD of Pipile cujubi nattereri Reichenbach, 1861 online? The title should be something like:

Quote:
Die vollstandigste Naturgeschichte der Tauben und taubenartigen Vogel : Wallnister, Erdtauben, Baumtauben, Hocco's, Columbariae, Megapodinae, Peristerinae, Columbinae, Alectorinae
e.g. here mentioned.

Thank you. I was on that track but this part was quiet hidden (at least for my small brain).

Finding your way through Reichenbach's works is a bit of a nightmare. (Whatever your brain's size, I think. )
And BHL doesn't really help either (i.a., many of the announced publication dates are completely off; sometimes the covers do not match the content; sometimes the scanned volumes include different things but this is not apparent until you check; etc.)

Is Carnegie Institution of Washington publication 54 v.1 part 2 (1907) available anywhere, please? Missing from BHL's list (they only have 54 v.3).
