What is BioStor?
BioStor provides tools for extracting, annotating, and visualising literature from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and other sources). For background and further details please see:
Page, R. D. (2011). Extracting scientific articles from a large digital archive: BioStor and the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BMC Bioinformatics. Springer Science + Business Media. doi:10.1186/1471-2105-12-187
The main purpose of BioStor is to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. To get started you can read the guide to using BioStor, or go directly to the Reference Finder. You can also use BioStor to find references from within EndNote and Zotero. If you use the Firefox web browser you could install the OpenURL Referrer add on, which will add the same functionality to sites that support support COinS, such as Mendeley.
BioStor is a project by Rod Page. For data sources see Credits.
