Building the Small Collections Network: A Model from ECN
Presenter/discussion leader: Katja Seltmann, American Museum of Natural History, Immediate Past President of Entomology Collections Network and Pam Horsley, American Museum of Natural History and lead organizer of the annual Entomological Collections Network meeting.
Date/time: 21 April 2014, 3:00 p.m. EDT
The Entomology Collections Network (ECN) is an excellent example of combining community interest, need, and collaboration to create an important resource for collections professionals. Founded to support the mutual needs of those who manage and digitize entomology collections, its history and success provide an excellent model for connecting small collections of all types and for growing SCNet into a communitywide resource. Katja will outline the development and organization of ECN, followed by discussion on how SCNet might benefit from the ECN model.
