Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Encyclopedia of Life should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry Encyclopedia of Life

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 3 mappings to external registries for this resource with 3 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.3J6NYn
re3data Registry of Research Data Repositories logo re3data r3d100010229
Wikidata Wikidata Property logo wikidata P830

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE eolife:1044544 is used to demonstrate the provides available for this resource. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
