Workshop: Towards a strategic approach to mobilising UK museum biodiversity data

Post Workshop Surveys

We need your input! To generate a truly collaborative vision that considers digitisation needs and opportunities across the UK, we would be grateful for your time in completing two surveys. We are using this approach to avoid duplicating data – it is important to fill in both surveys if you would like to contribute:

Survey 1 for NatSCA community, but USA input also welcome.
Survey 2 NatSCA community only
  • Survey 2 – Please note: Fill in Sections A and B ONLY
  1. Select "non-DiSSCo partner" from the pull-down list for the first question in section A (A.1: ‘Select the DiSSCo partner you are responding for’, ‘non-DiSSCo partner’ is at the bottom)
  2. For mixed collection institutions: questions relate to the institution’s natural science collections ONLY (e.g. B.2. Personnel, Q4 – number of natural sciences curators NOT all subject curators)
  3. If you do not have the precise information requested, please provide your best estimate.

All UK information will be collated from DiSSCo to help inform next steps.

Workshop Report

Workshop Report: Towards a strategic approach to mobilising UK museum biodiversity data. by Isla Gladstone, Senior Curator Natural Sciences, Bristol Culture

Abstract

iDigBio is supporting UK efforts to foster across-region collaboration and discussions for development of a strategic plan and vision to digitize regional and small collections across the UK. Participants at these event are museum leaders and directors. We will share case studies of collaborative digitization and data mobilization and offer examples from potential key stakeholders while highlighting audience benefits. Topics include: the UK science / nature agenda, citizen science, workforce skills and diversity, the power of storytelling, funding models, and institutional benefits mapping.

Organizers and Sponsors

This workshop is funded by the John Ellerman Foundation, as part of the 'South West Area Natural Sciences' (SWANS) project led by Bristol City Council's Culture Team. It is co-organized with iDigBio and the Natural History Museum, London.
