Symposium Time: 8:30am - 5:00pm Berlin time (CEST), but: 2:30AM - 11:00AM Florida time (EDT)! So aren't you glad we're recording?! Symposium date: Thursday 23 June 2016.

For our SPNHC 2016 An International Conversation on Mobilizing Natural History Collections Data and Integrating Data for Research we had over 27 abstracts submitted for this 9 slot symposium. So, we added an additional symposium titled: Digitizing and Imaging Collections: New Methods, Ideas, and Uses. In this symposium, we've organized the talks starting with some collections software and data management to connect online resources. Next, it's all about images -- different techniques, and what you might do with the output -- from slides to photogrammetry -- to using the images with tools like Inselect, and using text search of OCR output from these images to maximize a digitization workflow. We then look at new ideas for digitization and a discussion of some of the challenges. The symposium focus then shifts to highlight some use cases for biocollections data while keeping in mind small collections, crowd-sourcing versus in-house digitization, and data quality.
