Calling all ecological data experts to help answer questions about how to deal with all the data ecologists are collecting! Or are you a tool developer who wants to show off cool tools using loads of ecological data? Do you know metadata, best practices for data management or ecological coding, and want to help others?

Ecological data repositories and data specialists will collaborate at the upcoming ESA meeting to add a Data Help Desk to the Poster/Exhibition Hall. The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI), Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), iDigBio, DataCite, DataONE, and Arctic Data Center (ADC) are looking for Help Desk participants in four areas:
1) Data Reference Desk (where volunteers can answer data questions)
2) Private ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions (by prior sign-up)
3) Mini-Workshops on Data Topics and
4) Tool and Platform Demos (where volunteers can provide a tool/service demonstration).
Mini-workshops and demos can be short or up to an hour long.

We are looking for volunteers to sign-up for each of the Help Desk sections for hour long shifts. Sign-up is here: <https://goo.gl/forms/dmWMnrE78ql7IOOG3> https://goo.gl/forms/dmWMnrE78ql7IOOG3

Looking forward to seeing many of you in New Orleans and thanks for supporting this ecological Data Help Desk!
