Arctos is both a community and a collection management information system. It provides fundamental research infrastructure for biodiversity data and is intended for curators, collection managers, investigators, educators, and anyone interested in natural and cultural history. Over 3 million records are publicly available from 20+ collaborating institutions.
We are holding Open Office Hours this week! Please join us with your questions on how best to use Arctos, either as a curatorial user or a researcher. Or just join the conversation; we will review some new features of our Handbook and Arctos so we hope that everyone will learn something new and useful. If you do have a specific question (no dumb ones!), please add to this Google Doc so we can organize the initial set of issues and be sure we tap the right experts for answers.
