D7.3 - Literature search

This, the third and final deliverable of workpackage seven, was originally conceived of as an "Enhanced search facility to locate concepts based on linguistics and proximity rules." It was superseded during the project by the need to provide a breadth of coverage to enable a bibliography of life.
In this it complements the workpackage's first deliverable, D7.1 - Community contributed bibliography, which contributed the depth of coverage to the bibliography of life. This realignment of the deliverable to better meet the needs of the working biodiversity community was possible because of ViBRANT's agile management approach.

The bibliography of life can be accessed at http://biblife.org/.

The software was demonstrated successfully in October 2013 at BIH2013 and at TDWG2013.
