The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is the world’s largest open access digital library for biodiversity literature and archives. Operating as an international library consortium, BHL provides free access to millions of pages, representing over 500 years of scientific research, alongside services like data exports, APIs, and taxonomic intelligence tools to facilitate discovery and reuse of data and collections.
Digital Repository of Ireland
The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is a national trusted digital repository (TDR) for Ireland’s social and cultural data. We preserve, curate, and provide sustained access to a wealth of Ireland’s humanities and social sciences data through a single online portal. The repository houses unique and important collections from a variety of organisations including higher education institutions, cultural institutions, government agencies, and specialist archives. DRI has staff members from a wide variety of backgrounds, including software engineers, designers, digital archivists and librarians, data curators, policy and requirements specialists, educators, project managers, social scientists and humanities scholars. DRI is certified by the CoreTrustSeal, the current TDR standard widely recommended for best practice in Open Science. In addition to providing trusted digital repository services, the DRI is also Ireland’s research centre for best practices in digital archiving, repository infrastructures, preservation policy, research data management and advocacy at the national and European levels. DRI contributes to policy making nationally (e.g. via the National Open Research Forum and the IRC), and internationally, including European Commission expert groups, the Digital Preservation Coalition, DARIAH, and the OECD.
