    "European science is facing a tremendous loss of taxonomic expertise as the succession of retiring qualified taxonomists is hampered by reorientation of work and by cuts in staff. Consequently, the passing-on of taxonomic knowledge and skills to a new generation might be decreasing. To evaluate if adequate training opportunities are currently still available to the new generation of taxonomists, EDIT scored today’s education in taxonomy and analysed its strengths and weaknesses. This exercise was needed to meaningful implement the overall objective of WP 8: establishing a European state-of-the art school of taxonomy." [Taken from the document.]

    No. 89
    test
    "The following document was drafted by the EDIT WP3.1 Directors of Collections (DoC) group. It is based on the loan policies of 13 European natural history museums participating within EDIT, prepared by a taskforce within the DoC, and the result of discussions held in two DoC workshops. The document aims at a common loan policy for EDIT institutions that will facilitate access to specimens through loans whilst maximising their long term preservation. This is closely aligned with the EDIT aim to develop commonality of policy within an integrated taxonomic facility." [Taken from the document.]

    "The overall objective of EDIT is to significantly improve the capacity of the European Research Area by integrating the efforts of its major taxonomic institutions. EDIT pursues this by working to create, and provide access to, more and higher quality taxonomic information, structured for accessibility and suitable for re-purposing, best suited for application in conservation and resource management. Thus EDIT will empower all biodiversity stakeholders throughout society. After 2011 the EDIT effort will be further supported and developed institutionally by the CETAF, which has decided to develop its management and policy capacities to build on EDIT’s legacy."

    "The guide covers the practice of issuing and maintaining Persistent Identifiers for primary biodiversity data from a beginner's perspective. It also includes information explaining the costs and benefits of implementing Persistent Identifiers. It was commissioned by the GBIF Secretariat in response to the recommendations of the LSID GUID Task Group, convened with the objective to explore the issues and offer recommendations on the way forward that will enable GBIF to provide architecture leadership and best practices for the implementation of Persistent Identifiers."

    This presentation was delivered as a part of the "2nd GBIF Data Recording for technicians in Natural History Collections ".Collection databasing is expensive and laborious, and their results are only visible in the long term. It is for that reason that such a task should be tackle from the perspective of the utility. When planning the computerization of a collection, is necessary to consider carefully the objectives and how the database is going to fulfill them. Doing otherwise is throwing away time and money.
