Please join us for the next installment of Darwin Core Hour: Thousands
of Shades for “Controlled” Vocabularies, with presenter, Paula Zermoglio.
DETAILS for webinar.
That's this Tuesday 4th April, 11AM EDT, 12 noon ART, 3PM UTC
In this third chapter in the Darwin Core Hour series we will visit some
of the most colorful Darwin Core terms for which the use of *controlled
vocabularies* is recommended. First, as a follow up to Chapter 2, we
will expose the current content of particular terms as they are
published right now via different aggregators. Second, we will try to
disentangle the reasons, purposes and chances that lead us to observe
this diversity of values in such fields. Then, we will explore the
current availability of controlled vocabularies in different disciplines
within our community and the initiatives that are addressing the problem
from different perspectives. Finally, we will try to understand if there
is actually a pot at the end of the rainbow: can we come up with solid,
community-built controlled vocabularies?
