FYI


*Arctos Webinar Series Episode 2*

*Date & time*: Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 / 3:00 PM EST

*Location*: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/room

*Title*: Basic and Advanced Searching in Arctos

*Abstract*: Arctos is a community of museums that collaborate to manage and
host their data online. Over 3 million records are publicly available at
https://arctos.database.museum, a searchable biodiversity database for
scientific research, resource management, and education. The Arctos
database can be queried on multiple levels, including taxonomy, geography,
collection or identifier, agent name, part or attribute, and relationship,
as well as for media such as images, audio recordings, and video. Search
parameters and results can be customized by the user, mapped in
BerkeleyMapper or Google Earth, and saved in a user profile or downloaded
as csv, tab-delimited text, or xml.

While data are served and shared through the public portal, specimen data
are protected at the curatorial level through the virtual private databases
of each Arctos collection. Sensitive information may be encumbered from
public view at the discretion of the individual collections.

This webinar will provide a short introduction to the variety of basic and
advanced search tools available in Arctos using Gold Standard examples to
illustrate different types of search parameters and the integration of
multiple data sources including projects, relationships, citations, and
publications.

Museum of Southwestern Biology at the University of New Mexico), and
Kyndall Hildebrandt (Collection Manager, Museum of the North, University of
