Title: uBio - Universal Biological Indexer and Organizer
Title abbreviated: uBio
Creator: WHOI = Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution <Woods Hole, Mass.> / MBLWHOI = Marine Biological Laboratory / Library
Abstract: uBio is an initiative within the science library community to join international efforts to create and utilize a comprehensive and collaborative catalog of names of all living (and once-living) organisms. The Taxonomic Name Server (TNS) catalogs names and classifications to enable tools that can help users find information on living things using any of the names that may be related to an organism. (...) uBio provides access to the Taxonomic Name Service via SOAP. SOAP allows users to access uBio data as if it were a local resource. For example, a library may have a database of fish pictures it serves. Users may query by name to find pictures. The developer of this system could use NameBank to access additional names that can be used to ensure than name queries find the pictures even if the name wasn't originally attached to the picture.
