The OmniPaper Project was created by Adriano B. Kury of the Brazilian National Museum in 2003.

It consists in a long list of collective or individual author pages with biographical and bibliographical information and a great number of PDF files of taxonomic papers.

It is very important to grant uncomplicated and free access to otherwise hard to find literature and is a key resource to both beginners and scholars.
