Abstract: Arctos currently serves ca. 775,000 media records with associated metadata including photos, documents, audio and video recordings, and CT scans. This webinar will provide an overview of how the Arctos data model manages media and makes them available for users. We will cover the types of media in Arctos, different ways of searching media, the process for creating media, and how to relate media to other Arctos data including specimens, collecting events, agents, projects, taxonomy, transactions, and other media. We also will show how Arctos tools are used to tag keywords in media records (e.g., catalog ledgers) to aid in finding. We will give examples of different types of media and media relationships in Arctos, and will discuss how media enrich the value of other data for biological, cultural, and social studies.
