Becoming a GBIF Provider: Why and How.

THE goal of the Global Biodiversity Information facility (GBIF) is to provide free access to specimens records in the world's natural history collections. This will facilitate many analyses that currently require an enormous investment of time. Becoming a data provider offers several benefits for herbaria. The workshop will provide an overview of these benefits, instruction on how to become a data provider, and a demonstration of the ways in which GBIF can already be of use.. Participants are encouraged to come with information about their herbarium database but this is not essential. Representatives of herbaria that do not yet have a specimen database are also welcome.
