Upcoming Campaigns: Mid-Atlantic and Midwest Herbaria

If you maintain an herbarium collection in the Mid-Atlantic (NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, DC) or Midwest (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI) regions of the U.S., the Symbiota Support Hub invites your participation in upcoming campaigns for the Mid-Atlantic Herbarium Consortium and Consortium of Midwest Herbaria! While these events are tailored to collections administrators, all portal community members are welcome to attend. Topics to be covered in the campaigns include:

  • How to manage and mobilize your herbarium’s data in the Consortium portal
  • How to update your collections metadata & related housekeeping
  • How to use the portals’ taxonomic and geographic cleaning tools
  • How to publish your data to iDigBio and GBIF
  • Community sustainability planning discussions
  • Time for asking questions and meeting other portal community members

Keep an eye on the pages linked below for meeting registration links and campaign documentation as planning proceeds:
