Enriched + checked existing documentation in original language (website) D11 – Deliverable 7.2.3


This deliverable presents the work that has been done over the last months in identifying, checking, analysing, and enriching existing documentation. “Existing documentation” means documents, handbooks, descriptions, published information as text, video, or as slides from projects, networks or institutions that have a direct connection to the aims and means of the OpenUp! project – like Europeana, GBIF, BioCASe and TDWG – and thus have a direct value for the members of the consortium. But also a great number of documents have been taken into account, which are interesting for the biodiversity information and digital library domains in general. The chapter “Documentation Sources” describes the sources of these documentations and gives background information on the projects, networks, and institutions.
