LinBi focuses upon Europe’s biodiversity content. This content reflects the enormous variety of life on earth, as depicted in books, illustrations, specimen scans, photographs, sound recordings and video. Biodiversity content is usually described using scientific terms. Such terms are understood clearly by experts but present a barrier for use by non-experts. This leads to low discoverability and reduced exploitation/re-use of content.

LinBi will help to bring together research and the general public. Our goal is to introduce research material to new users and re-users, such as students and nature enthusiasts, broadcasters, politicians, industry, SMEs and education providers. LinBi is an important step in providing access to biodiversity content for new user communities.

LinBi aims to bridge the information gap by providing new ways of using biodiversity content. By linking information objects, the LinBi enrichment platform will connect Europe’s biodiversity material with existing content. All data items will subsequently be processed by the OpenUp! natural history aggregator and delivered to Europeana.
