  1. We compare the resources contained in the curated BIRI knowledge base with the resources indexed by other public indexes at the time of writing this paper. The table shows: i) the total number of resources indexed by each index, ii) the number of matches found between BIRI and the index, and iii) the number of resources existing in BIRI knowledge base that do not exist in the other index.
