JSTOR
JSTOR, a research platform that enables discovery,
access, and preservation of scholarly content, merged
with ITHAKA in 2009 and is a service of the organization.
ITHAKA is a not-for-profit organization that helps the
academic community use digital technologies to preserve
the scholarly record and to advance research and
teaching in sustainable ways.
We pursue this mission by providing innovative services
that aid in the adoption of these technologies and that
create lasting impact.
About Global Plants
Global Plants is a comprehensive database of plant type
specimens and complementary content
» Contains the contributed collections of more than 270 herbaria from
70 countries
» The largest of its kind—more than two million plant type specimens
and other foundational materials
» Built through the Global Plants Initiative (GPI), an international
partnership wherein herbaria and JSTOR work together to create a
shared database of information and images of plants worldwide
About the Global Plants Initiative (GPI)
GPI represents a 10 year collaborative
effort
» Began with a small group of herbaria,
then called the African Access
Initiative, expanded to incorporate
herbaria and plants from Latin
America, and then became global in
scale
» Today, GPI partner organizations from
Argentina to Zimbabwe capture data
and use digital technologies to create
high resolution images of type
specimens from their collections

About GPI and JSTOR
In partnership with JSTOR, GPI is building a sustainable
resource that the international scientific community can rely
upon.
» JSTOR acts as the virtual hub, providing the production systems,
support for digitizing the types, and a platform for discovery
» Global Plants has tripled in size during its development; it is now
transitioning from a grant-funded project to a sustainability model
that includes financial contributions from partners; JSTOR
provides the infrastructure and other services; educational,
cultural, governmental, and other research institutions contribute
annual fees for access to parts of the database
