3:30-4:45 Concurrent Session I
Not available R and the iDigBio API: Enabling Exploration and Discovery
Ronald Canepa, ACIS Lab, University of Florida

APIs and their use: a non-technical overview of the iDigBio Application Programming Interface (APIs) and example use cases for both data providers and downstream data consumers.
Thrills and spills: sharing experiences, insights, and products on education, outreach, diversity & inclusion
Molly Phillips, iDigBio, University of Florida

This session will include a series of 5-minute lightning presentations from TCN representatives on successes (thrills) and lessons learned (spills) relating to education, outreach, diversity, and inclusion (EODI) initiatives followed by a Q&A/discussion. The goals of this session are to raise awareness about all of the amazing EODI activities and products that have stemmed from the ADBC program and to hopefully encourage cross-pollination of ideas and collaboration among the projects.

Lightning talk slots are filling fast, so email Molly Phillips (mphillips@flmnh.ufl.edu) if you would like to present.

Sharing biotic interactions found in collection data
Katja Seltmann, UC Santa Barbara, Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration

During this session we will discuss how existing species interaction datasets are structured and how to increase our ability to generate aggregate datasets and examine networks of interactions. We will show examples of datasets shared through Global Biotic Interactions (GloBI - https://www.globalbioticinteractions.org) and discuss ideas about how to share more biotic interaction data for research.
How to convince your institution to digitize its biodiversity collection
Eric Knox, Indiana University Herbarium

This session will briefly present the institutional funding strategy that was successfully used to curate and digitize a semi-orphaned collection of 161,000+ herbarium specimens at Indiana University. The critical point is that all discussion with administrators should be framed in terms of how you can help them with their collection, not the other way around. The ensuing discussion will address varied institutional settings and potential pitfalls to avoid.
Biodiversity Summit 2020 Discussion

iDigBio is looking for help from the ADBC community to provide suggestions and input for the 2020 Biodiversity Summit in Arlington.

Petra Sierwald, Field Museum

The Field Museum conducted a georeferencing trial using mostly pinned insects from North American localities- only land and freshwater. During this session, results will be reviewed (eg. what cleaning was necessary, unique localities, length of time for georeferencing, success rate, etc.) and opened for discussion.

Strategic Planning for the Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections (WeDigBio) Event
Austin Mast, Florida State University

Join us to discuss a future where large-scale creation of research-ready collections data continues with carefully crafted evaluation mechanisms guiding the community towards increasing science inclusiveness and participant understanding and valuation of biodiversity, collections, and science. A few 5-minute slots for those wishing to present their past WeDigBio innovations will be followed by a brief presentation of the strategic plan and a 30-minute discussion of it. Email Austin (amast@bio.fsu.edu) soon to get a 5-minute timeslot.
