1)                  Introduction

     *   New meeting time - half hour earlier from next month, 4th March UTC 14:30
     *   GitHub developments - issue labels, status, working procedure (https://github.com/tdwg/mids#tg-way-of-working).
     *   Reminder of the work - discussion and agreement of MIDS-1 information elements
     *   Short report from CETAF Digitization working group, 1st February 2021

2)                  Decision needed

     *   RecordCreator (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/13) - decision to remove from MIDS.
     *   CreatedOn (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/7) - decision to remove from MIDS.
     *   ModifiedOn (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/8) - decision to retain in MIDS and rename to 'Modified'.

Comment: The 3 elements were discussed at Meeting 2, with the conclusion that of the 3, only the date modified is useful publicly.

3)                  Decision needed

     *   Name (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/12) - decision to split into new elements Title (MIDS-1, MIDS-2) and Name (MIDS-2).

Comment: Meeting 2 agreed to change the title of this info element from ScientificName to Name to generalise it (Issue https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/6 refers). At the CETAF Digitisation WG meeting, 1st February discussion concluded with the proposal that different information is needed at MIDS-1 than at MIDS-2. Proposal is to split this information element into 'Title' at MIDS-1, akin to the Dublin Core Title term (dc:title) indicating what has been digitized, and 'Name' at MIDS-2, being connected to a classification of the object. Values for these two information elements can be the same or different.

4)                  Discussion needed (as time permits)

     *   MaterialType (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/14)
     *   Mass (https://github.com/tdwg/mids/issues/4) - proposal for an additional/new information element necessary for certain geological specimen categories

5)                  Any other business

Kind regards
