TCN Advisory Meetings (IAC) are open to any and all staff from iDigBio, Thematic Collections Networks (TCNs), Partners to Existing Networks (PENs), National Science Foundation (NSF), and other related digitization projects. Participation from any or all TCN and PEN participants is welcomed and encouraged! Please send a delegate so that your TCN or PEN is represented.
The IAC meets regularly to report on progress in digitization efforts, share best practices and standards (including lessons learned), identify gaps in digitization areas and technology, share opportunities to enhance training efforts, share collaborations with other TCNs and initiatives, share opportunities and strategies for sustainability, and share Education, Outreach, Diversity, & Inclusion initiatives and activities.
The TCN Advisory Meetings (IAC) are held quarterly (February, May, August, and November) on the first Wednesday of the month at 2:00 PM Eastern via Zoom: https://ufl.zoom.us/my/idigbiotcn
