Thank you for this talk Sylvia. The mention of what is the role of the Digitisation coordinator is exactly what is my role in my organisation (CSIRO) with ~15 million specimens across flora & fauna. It is such a needed role I find in very large collections with wide digitisation goals

Kira/Jackie: Do you want to type a response to the question in the Q&A (since it is specific to SI) ? Or wait until the end?
Kira Sobers
03:31:47
We can do either! We can respond in the Q&A directly, but it might be helpful as a jumping point to talking about things that influence prioritization?
Jillian Goodwin (iDigBio)
03:32:45
Sounds good to me šŸ‘

Nicole Fisher did a lightning talk yesterday in room 3 that highlighted this topic as well. I encourage everyone to view it. Thanks, Nicole!

Some years ago, there was a iDigBio working group looking at what the Role of a ā€˜Biodiversity Informatics Managerā€™ was, as it was seen as such an important role needed in ā€˜Data Managementā€™.:https://www.idigbio.org/wiki/index.php/Biodiversity_Informatics_ManagementIn the same way a ā€œDigitisation Co-ordinator/Managerā€ is now seen as an important role needed in ā€˜Digitisation Managementā€™

Thanks, Nicole. We should re-ignite this working group and include digitization coordination.

Thanks Helen, it's a particular specimen I love 'cause it's collected by my favourite NZ entomologist at my favourite NZ park - Otari Wilton bush.
