    Hello Robert,

    It is great that you were invited to give a presentation about 
GUID/LSID at the Paleontology meeting.

    You can get material for your presentation from the already familiar 
GUID Wiki (http://wiki.gbif.org/guidwiki/).

    You will also find some new LSID/GUID documents at 
http://www.tdwg.gbif.org/subgroups/guid/documents-reports/. In 
particular, you will find:

* Links to the slides presented at the two workshops on the workshop 
* An executive summary and a primer on LSIDs for biologists; and
* An annotated summary of LSID resources available on the Internet.

    Note that the page I mention above is on the pilot of the new TDWG 
website which is still under development.
    I hope this helps you to prepare your presentation.

    Regarding the latest GUID group activities, we have all been a 
little quiet lately, but that will change soon.

    The group working on the TDWG ontology has been quite active and 
they will report their work at the St. Louis meeting as Roger reported.

    Kevin Richards is preparing with our help a hands-on tutorial on 
LSID that will take place at the St. Louis meeting as well.

    All sounds very exciting.

    Best regards,
