Detailed overview:
Global Registry of Biorepositories (GRBio)
Title: Global Registry of Biorepositories (GRBio)
Title abbreviated: GRBio
Creator: Smithsonian Institution / National Museum of Natural History; et al.
Abstract: GRBio is the first-ever consolidated, comprehensive clearinghouse of information about biological collections in natural history museums, herbaria, and other biorepositories. This online-registry is a source for authoritative information about collections as well as validated, standardized data such as addresses, contacts, and values for the Darwin Core identifiers for institutions (InstitutionID) and collections (CollectionID). Personal collections can also be registered here, whether they belong to private collectors or are research collections that haven't yet been accessioned into an institutional collection. The Global Registry of Biorepositories is a merger of three prior registries and an ongoing collaboration among them: Index Herbariorum at the New York Botanical Garden, Biodiversity Collections Index (BCI) at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and created by the Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) at the Smithsonian Institution.
