Title:
SOFIA - Development of a Digitial Library of Biological Information
Online_Linkage: <https://sofia.usgs.gov/projects/sofia/>
Description:
Abstract:
The information systems project addresses the need for timely, high-quality and relevant information through the development of a digital library for the South Florida ecosystem. The digital library and related services will provide a comprehensive and coherent information system that facilitates the exchange, analysis and use of high-quality information resources across the diverse agencies, disciplines, and communities concerned with Everglades research, restoration and resource management.
Purpose:
To enable all stakeholders of the south Florida community to use sound science as a basis for informed planning decisions and resolution/prevention of resource-management problems, efforts to synthesize, manage and disseminate high-quality scientific information about the greater Everglades ecosystem have gained increasing support and urgency.

The resulting digital library will provide a coherent, widely available, and enduring online repository that documents the scientific knowledge and tools created through USGS-related studies in south Florida. It will also complement and interoperate with other federal agency information systems such as the South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) (<https://sofia.usgs.gov/>), developed and sponsored by the USGS South Florida Ecosystem Program; the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Clearinghouse (<http://www.nbii.gov/index.html>) maintained by the USGS Biological Resources Division; and the National Digital Library (<http://memory.loc.gov>) maintained by the Library of Congress. The digital library is also designed to work together with leading state-sponsored initiatives such as "Everglades Online" (<http://everglades.fiu.edu/eol/>), and "Linking Florida's Natural Heritage" (<http://susdl.fcla.edu/lfnh/>).
