Abstract

Abstract: The Workshop Day on Open/FAIR Natural History Data is intended for curators, managers, and users of natural history collections in Switzerland. It serves as a forum to draw up an overview of the current situation regarding data management and digitization in Swiss institutions and sets the collections and their data in the wider context of the emerging ecosystem of open/FAIR natural history data with its various infrastructures, stakeholders, initiatives, usage scenarios, value-added services, and governance structures.

The workshop day is a pre-event of the GLAMhack 2022, organized by the OpenGLAM working group of the Opendata.ch association, hosted by the Natural History Museum of Bern and supported by Plazi.org and the eBioDiv Project, in cooperation with SwissCollNet and Infofauna.
