    No. 207
    test
    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.
