TDWG 2011 Conference
Rusty Russell, Principal Investigator on the Field Book Project, is serving as Program Chair for the TDWG 2011 conference. The conference theme is "Digitization Methods, Technologies, and Standards for Biodiversity Collections" and there will be a lot of great ideas on how to make collections, like the field books, more accessible in digital environments. We're especially excited that Mark Leggott, President and CEO of Discovery Garden, will be demoing the Islandora repository along with the Field Book Registry implementation in Islandora. Carolyn Sheffield will be presenting a poster on the Field Book Project. Rusty Russell will be delivering a lightning talk on the Connecting Content project based at the California Academy of Sciences.
