“LinBi - Linking Bioheritage and culture information” is a Europeana Generic Service Project funded under CEF Telecom Programme. The project aims at supporting scientific and bio-cultural institutions and other public and private partners to increase the amount of content and metadata accessible through Europeana that is of high quality and suitable for reuse and to increase awareness and usage of Europeana.
The project will enhance the discoverability and reuse of 8.8 million existing biodiversity objects within Europeana which are overwhelmingly described by scientific data. The project will bridge the gap by providing new methods of linking information objects using the LinBi enrichment platform. The project will also create a new aggregation pathway to Europeana for biodiversity content and supply 1.3 million new high-quality biodiversity content into Europeana.
The project also aims to create an online exhibition which will enhance the reuse of biodiversity content from Europeana among the cultural and natural history community, researchers, educators and professionals in the creative industries.
