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.
