Summary: iDigBio brings two symposia to SPNHC 2017. The first, Advances in Digitization, offers talks showcasing current trends and recent developments in the world of collections digitization. We'll hear about new strategies for scaling up and improved data quality, and get input from the herbaria, fish, and paleo collections. We'll delve into the realm of 3-D imaging, citizen science, and research librarians as collaborators. Four posters offered in this section cover digitization efficiency and crowdsourcing ideas from insect collections, to paleo. We welcome our international participants from KEW, the Museum für Naturkunde, and the MNHN.

In our second symposium, we turn to the topic of Innovative Uses of Collections Data. Many collections now have more complete species inventories, and many have more complete digitized specimen-level collections. What can be done with this data in house,to help the collections themselves? How does the aggregation of this data help collections more effectively advocate for themselves? How can it be used to for strategic planning? for advertisement? for seeking funding and setting policies? What can researchers and collections managers tell us about their georeferencing needs? From the biological field station to collections with specimens in the millions, find out what collections are learning about their own holdings - and the potential in that information.
