ABCD is a biocollections data standard -- Accessing Biological 
Collections Data. While many of you are familiar with Darwin Core, you 
may not know ABCD.  Similarly, lots of you know and use the GBIF 
Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) used to package up the data into an 
archive file that aggregators like iDigBio and GBIF can ingest. ABCD and 
BioCASe quite different than Darwin Core and IPT in scope and function.

Curious? Note about 100 institutions worldwide use ABCD and BioCASe to 
share their biocollections data. Find out more, join us for this Darwin 
Core Hour. Note this webinar is targeted at data managers, but is also 
designed for those without deep IT knowledge.

Presenter: Jörg Holetschek, Biodiversity Data Networks Coordinator, 
Botanic Garden & Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (BGBM), joined by 
colleagues Gabi Dröge, and David Fichtmüller.
