GBIF Citation Widget

Among the advantages of publishing your collections to the GBIF data portal is the ability to track citations to your digitized collections. That list of “pros” has grown; now these important metrics can even be displayed on your collections profile within your Symbiota portal using the GBIF citation widget!

Example of the GBIF citation widget in use on the University of Colorado’s Symbiota portal.

Examples of the widget in use:

  • CCH2: OBI’s collections profile display’s the widget as a “count
  • COLO: The CU herbarium’s portal display’s the widget as a “feed

Contact the Hub ( if you’d like to have the citation widget added to your collection’s profile.
