Indonesian Natural Products Library or INPL (read: INPL) is a database of natural materials originating from Indonesian biodiversity that can be accessed by the public. INPL is a forum to accommodate research results that utilize Indonesia's marine and earth biodiversity (Indonesian biodiversity) from both Indonesian and foreign researchers. The results of these studies can be in the form of extracts, fractions, or metabolites. The data contained in the INPL is not limited to one kingdom, but includes all kingdoms of organisms such as animalia, plantae, protists, fungi, and monera. This database contains basic information, such as species name, sampling location, sample bioactivity, phytochemical content, and various related publications, but are not limited to such basic information. Each organism in the INPL has a record of the physical existence of the sample storage of the organism to facilitate all parties who wish to use this information as a reference for research and development activities, especially drug discovery (INPL Manual Book).
The purpose of INPL is to be a window of information on Indonesia's natural wealth, especially those that have medicinal potential or which have benefits such as food, energy, housing or other benefits needed by humans (Home INPL and INPL FGD Files). The information available from the INPL database can also be used by researchers to support their research.
The approach taken in the INPL is to combine/connect digital databases with the physical repository (storage) of related natural materials. A barcoding system may also be needed to facilitate the search for information on the physical repository of the required materials (Home INPL)
The benefit of INPL in a wider scope is to become a source of database for all types of organisms that have potential as medicine, food, energy or other human needs that exist in every region of Indonesia.

Who deposited the data?
Anyone or a researcher who uses biodiversity for research can save data to this website.
How to deposit data?
To register research results into the INPL database portal, users must first register an account. Author data is required to verify the registered account. Then, the information from the research results is entered into the INPL database portal by the user and will be reviewed by the INPL development team. The results of this review will determine whether the information from the results of this study is appropriate and has met the basic criteria needed to enter information into the INPL, so that the existing data is valid and can be accounted for. The data stored in the INPL is digital data, while the original extracts of the research results can be stored in their respective laboratories. Therefore, information is also needed in the form of where the sample is stored and stability data to determine the storage period of the extract (INPL FGD File).
INPL has a collaboration with SGU, IPB University, BRIN, UEU and the University of Lampung.
