This wiki supports the SPNHC 2016 Symposium - An International Conversation on Mobilizing Natural History Collections Data and Integrating Data for Research, Berlin, Germany, 16 June 2016.

SYNTHESYS3, GBIF, CETAF, iDigBio, and others collaborated to create a series of 5 linked symposia to foster a unified conversation at SPNHC 2016 directed at coordinating efforts to realize global digitization and global data access for biological collections. The goals of these integrated symposia are to discuss digitization lessons learned so far, facilitating worldwide digitization and data access, prioritizing digitization collaboratively, and investigating the idea of using the ADBC and iDigBio and TCN models in other parts of the world.

Abstract. Natural History Collection (NHC) data are being mobilized all over the world. Recent preliminary worldwide survey data suggests the trend is growing. As digitization begins to become an every-day part of collections, many compelling issues vie for attention. For example, cost, prioritization, sustainability, and rates of digitization are four such issues. And, many uses for NHC data are well-known and fairly well-understood. But issues exist with the data, and there is still much legacy data to be digitally captured – before it can be shared with the world’s researchers. We envision an assortment of talks covering three areas: digitization (including imaging) lessons learned, new and emerging technologies/models, and collections data-in-action.
