The discovery and use of digital field station data
The Small Collections Network and iDigBio are hosting a listening session to gather community feedback on how small/regional collections (including those held at field stations) have been involved in iDigBio and ADBC activities to date, as well as what activities (webinars, workshops, trainings, etc.) would be most valuable to focus on in the upcoming year. We welcome perspectives from any collection size and any level of iDigBio/ADBC involvement, including no previous activity with iDigBio/ADBC.
Symposium: No Collection Left Behind: Research Contributions of Small Collections
The European MOBILISE COST Action sets out "to foster a cooperative network in Europe to support excellent research activities, and facilitate knowledge and technology transfer around natural science collections." As part of their efforts to prepare for the funding and implementation of DiSSCo, they are setting up their first First Training School on Digitization and Data Management of Collections!
