Webinar Abstract:
Drawing from examples within the taxonomic and natural history collection
communities, this webinar will detail the data types and challenges of
biological specimen data. We’ll explore the value and import of data
quality open resources, the current status of data assurance practices as
well as some more practical 'how-to’ examples of implementing data quality
assurance (QA) methods. For example, QA of publicly shared data is critical
for effective use and reuse. As part of the data life cycle, QA often
occurs following the collection of data. However, planning for quality
assurance in advance of data collection is time efficient and much cheaper
than trying to clean up and standardize later. QA planning can help avoid
commonly occurring data collection / entry errors.
