Title: Projects, Publications, and Citations in Arctos
Abstract: Arctos is both a community and a collection management information system. It provides fundamental research infrastructure for biodiversity data, and is intended for curators, collection managers, investigators, educators, and anyone interested in natural and cultural history. Over 3 million records are publicly available from 20+ collaborating institutions.
This webinar will provide an overview of how Arctos captures and connects information with Projects, Publications, and Citations. These features help track specimens and collection objects for the entirety of their lives, from acquiring project funding to being used for cutting-edge research 50 years in the future.
Presenters: Michelle Koo (Staff Curator, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley), Jon Dunnum, & Mariel Campbell (Collection Managers, Museum of Southwestern Biology at the University of New Mexico).
Moderator: Erica Krimmel (Assistant Collection Manager, Chicago Academy of Sciences)
