Web service for accessing the natural history collections data in the digital catalog of LIB.
Results are avaliable in HTML, JSON or XML/RDF format. Various parameters can be used to scroll through the results, request a specific format or set the page size.
Each search parameter is an approximate search for the word. Thus the text accessionnumber=MAM finds all entries in which the catalog number begins with MAM. If the search word MAM should be in the text, a percent sign (%) must be put in front of the word: project=%Mammalia finds all entries in the project of the project section Mammalia.
The data format of the server response can be passed either as query parameter, as URL path or via content negotiation.
Possible formats are: html, json and xml/rdf.
The described parameters for browsing and searching for taxon names and projects are possible, as well as the URL path extensions for the detailed display of an entry from the catalog.
