  • GLOBAL BIODIVERSITY INFORMATION FACILITY Vishwas Chavan [email_address] WWW.GBIF.ORG Towards demand-driven publishing of Natural History Collections Data: Recommendations of the GBIF GSAP-NHC TG Building the Biodiversity Informatics Commons SPNHC-CBA 2010 Annual Conference June 1-5, 2010 Ottawa, CANADA
    • TG commissioned in 2008 Q3
    • Survey on challenges & concerns to digitisation
    • Draft report submitted to GBIFS in April 2010; in process of endorsement by GBIF Science Committee
      • Summary of recommendations
      • The size of universe of collections data: elements for preliminary approach
      • Results of survey on challenges & concerns
      • Approaches to the prioritisation of digitisation
      • Geographical & taxonomic metadata to set priorities in specimen digitisation
    GBIF GSAP-NHC Task Group
    • Discovery: facilitate access to information about non-digital collection resources
    • Digitisation: increase the efficiency of data capture and to enhance data quality
    • Publication: improve & promote global infrastructure to mobilise digitised collections data
    GSAP-NHC: 3 Recommendations
    • GBIF must facilitate access to information about non-digital collection resources
    • Publicise research potential of collections through metadata
      • Author & publish metadata
      • Strengthen metadata publishing infrastructure
    • Assessing the number of un-digitised specimens
      • determine the size of the holdings of un-digitised specimens world-wide
    GSAP-NHC Recommendation 1: Discovery
    • GBIF must work with collections to continue to increase the efficiency of specimen data capture and to enhance data quality
    • Technical measures:
      • industrialise, technological innovations, QA/QC, fitness-for-use, data dictionaries
    • Attribution, professional credit, institutional priorities
      • Data publishing framework, metadata as data paper, institutional recognitions
    • Funding
    GSAP-NHC Recommendation 2: Digitisation
    • GBIF must continue to improve and promote the global infrastructure used to mobilise digitised collections data
    • Technical measures: hosting environment, persistent identifiers
    • Outreach activities: southern hemisphere collections, small & medium sized collections
    • Political measures: national & thematic demand-driven digitisation strategies
    GSAP-NHC Recommendation 3: Publication
    • Discussion session at SPNCH-CBA 2010
    • Release of Report: July 2010
    • Metadata as data paper: Sept/Oct 2010
    • Statement by GBIF Governing board on discovery & publishing of NHC data
    GSAP-NHC Recommendations: What’s Next?
