A distributed service
which resolves to information resources
The GBRDS is 1) a Registry of resources and services and 2) a set of discovery services interacting with existing infrastructure such as GBIF to facilitate the discovery of biodiversity information. The most important component, the Registry would facilitate the inventory of information resources by creating a single annotated index of publishers, institutions, networks, collections (datasets), schema repository and services. The envisaged GBRDS is not conceived to be designed as simply a collection of centralized indexes but much more as an integrated ‘Yellow Pages’ reference of all biodiversity information resources, reconciling all distributed resources and providing a meaningful way to discover them in a distributed manner.
