Hi Everyone!

Please join us tomorrow to learn about what happens to museum specimen 
data when it is shared with a data aggregator.

Title: Darwin Core Hour: GBIF and iDigBio present the Aggregator's Viewpoint
    Part ONE: GBIF: free and open access to global biodiversity data
    Part TWO: iDigBio - aggregating and enhancing vouchered global 
biocollections data

When: Tuesday, August 15th, 10 AM EDT,  9AM CDT, 4 PM CEST
Where: https://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/room

**NOTE: this DwC Hour could potentially go slightly over its scheduled 

Abstract. In this next Darwin Core Hour Series, we shift to the 
viewpoint of large biodiversity data aggregators. In this session, we 
welcome GBIF and iDigBio. GBIF aggregates the world's biodiversity data 
from observations to checklists to biological specimen data. iDigBio 
aggregates vouchered specimen data with related media, genetic 
information and trait data. The Darwin Core Standard plays a key role in 
the standardization of biodiversity data and in the design and 
implementation of strategies to improve data quality. Many people wonder 
what happens to their data after they provide it to an aggregator. Find 
out the answers to such questions as: what does the aggregator do to 
assess fitness of the data?, what are the most common data issues seen?, 
what does the aggregator do to data to make it easier to find when 
searching an aggregator database?, and how does sharing data with an 
aggregator benefit me as a collection manager/curator/researcher/data 

As always, we encourage people to bring or submit 
<https://tinyurl.com/zja2muz> questions and to have open discussions in 
each webinar.
