Collection Specimen URIs as Services Do we want other systems to discover, harvest, and re-use our collection data? If so, we need to access points and mechanisms for registration.
Access points Option 1: use protocols and implementations established in our community (e.g. DiGIR, BioCASe, TAPIR, DwC-A) Option 2: use generic protocols and implementations (e.g. SPARQL, OAI-PMH) Option 3: keep it simpler
The simple system Publish base-url in a registry (to be decided) Example: http://data.bgbm.org/herbarium/http://data.bgbm.org/herbarium/ The link returns a simple rdf-encoded list of all published specimen-URIs (format to be decided) No query or paging mechanisms. They can be implemented by clients/aggregators.
Proposed registry The BiodiversityCatalogue (https://www.biodiversitycatalogue.org/)BiodiversityCatalogue Implemented by BioVeL Part of the MyExperiment platform Little sister of the BioCatalogue with ~2500 services registered
