Entomological collections and Ecological data repositories and data specialists will collaborate at the EntSoc 2018 meeting in Vancouver to add a Data Help Desk to the Poster/Exhibition Hall. The Entomological Collections Network (ECN), iDigBio, and the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) do this to offer their combined expertise and learn about data needs from those attending this conference.
