This article presents a digital library solution for integrating data from a network of ecological sites using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) and the Open Digital Library (ODL) framework extended with geographic components. This solution incorporates simple, yet effective, decentralized input interfaces for handling(More)
This paper describes BDiG-PELD, a digital library for integrating ecological data produced by a Brazilian biodiversity research network. The BDiG-PELD architecture uses open interoperability standards and decentralized input interfaces for handling heterogeneous data from non-structured sources. These data are published in local EML (Ecological Metadata(More)
