Dear Participants and Friends of GBIF,

The LSID-GUID Task Group (LGTG) was convened by GBIF earlier this year
(http://www.gbif.org/News/NEWS1243443852) to provide advice on persistent identifiers for biodiversity informatics. The principal objective of the group is to provide recommendations and guidelines on deployment of Life Science Identifiers (LSIDs) and other Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs) on the GBIF network with particular reference to the potential role of GBIF as a stable, long term provider of GUID resolution services. GBIF recognises that input by Participants is an essential and valuable part of the process both in nominating members of the task group and in providing feedback to output of the task group.

The LGTG has now released a draft of their report (attached). You are invited to review the draft document and provide feedback to the task group on or before the 7th September. Please send your comments/input directly to the task group mailing list (lgtg at lists.gbif.org) (note:
you do not need to subscribe to the list).

Yours sincerely,

(on behalf of the LGTG members)
