Join iDigBio and panelists from the community in a moderated conversation about sustaining digitization and data mobilization activities in biodiversity collections beyond initial grant funding. Panelists will discuss strategies for integrating digitization into an institution’s ongoing activities and budget, including what metrics they see as valuable for gaining internal support. Panelists will also consider impediments to sustaining digitization.
