Reposted. Thought this might be of interest. 

The Biodiversity Collections Network, an NSF Research Coordination Network, is pleased to alert you to the availability of a new draft report.  The document, Extending U.S. Biodiversity Collections to Address National Challenges, is the outcome of a workshop convened on 30 October and 1 November 2018 at Oak Spring Garden in Upperville, Virginia.  That workshop was informed by prior BCoN workshops and reports, scientific literature, a community survey, and several community dialogues convened at scientific meetings during 2018.  The workshop addressed the future deployment of data held in U.S. biodiversity collections for research, policy, and education. 

BCoN invites public comment on this draft report.  The comment period is open until 5:00 PM Eastern on 1 February 2019.  Comments should be emailed to Dr. Barbara Thiers at bthiers@nybg.org.

To read the report and supporting materials, please visit https://bcon.aibs.org/2019/01/16/community-input-requested-extending-u-s-biodiversity-collections-to-address-national-challenges/
