Hi Christy,

Thank you for your great offer! I truly believe that it would provide all a
significant insight of good practices, ideas, hints, tips and tricks on
various aspects of collection management. One idea of hosting such a
collection would be to create a site where users can also
contribute, comment and distribute relevant material. The good thing is that
in that way we could also maintain different groupings for subjects by
tagging the same pictures on different clusters of information.


Anyway, I think it's a great idea and we should go for it!

Subject: Reference photos of other insect collections


Hi all, 
I find it extremely helpful to visit other insect collections to learn how
things are done in other institutions. I take a lot of pictures, of jars,
door handles, labels, cabinets, etc and refer back to them in my own
practices. I'm wondering if a reference collection of images from other
insect collections would be helpful to others? 

And if so, what would be the best way to host the images? As files on the
ECN facebook page, a google doc, possibly on the iDigBio site, or something

I'd love to hear what other people think of this idea. 

Thanks for any input, 
-Christy Bills
