The online meeting space we use will hold up to 500 people - so please 
invite your colleagues to join!

Chapter Abstract
In this 2nd chapter of the Darwin Core Hour series, we will glance at 
the list of Darwin Core terms that are recommended to be populated with 
values from*controlled vocabularies*. From that list we’ll look at some 
basic terms (e.g., dcterms:type, dwc:basisOfRecord, etc.) for which 
there are clearly recommended controlled vocabularies.

For the best Darwin Core Hour experience, please add your input here

We will explore how controlled vocabularies are used in practice and how 
usage differs from the recommendations. We’ll discuss what the 
consequences might be of not following controlled vocabularies, and the 
converse - what the consequences might be of doing so. We’ll look at 
some of the secrets of how aggregators deal with the problem and the 
lessons we can learn from them. Finally, we will review questions that 
have been submitted related to this particular subject and open the 
webinar for further discussion.
Presenter: John Wieczorek
