Title: Introduction to Arctos for Mammal Collections
Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020
Time: 3pm ET
Presenter: Aren Gunderson (Mammal Collection Manager, University of Alaska Museum of the North)
Abstract: The University of Alaska Museum Mammal Collection was one of the first collections to use Arctos. Many of Arctos' primary functions were designed for the UAM Mammal Collection, and the collection has been used to test many new system features over time. This webinar will present an overview of Arctos as a collection management system for mammal collections. We will demonstrate various ways to work with specimen data in bulk and at the individual specimen level. We will follow the digital processes from accession, to data entry, cataloging, object tracking using barcodes, and loans. If time allows we will cover some advanced methods of using media, publications, permits, and projects. Though we will not be able to demonstrate the full multitude of Arctos tools available in this tutorial, we will introduce the fundamentals of collection management using Arctos for mammal collections.
