SBDI Webinar and Workshop: Publishing and analyzing biodiversity data from natural history collections

May 30, 2022

We welcome you to a webinar and workshop for SBDI stakeholders presented as the final session of a four-part Spring 2022 webinar series “Digital samling – en utblick” at the NRM!


The first part of the day is a webinar that will end with an open discussion of topics covered on the impact and importance of publishing data from museum collections. The second part of the day is a workshop during which SBDI tools for publishing and analyzing data will be presented with the opportunity for hands-on work with your datasets, either published or earmarked for SBDI publication.


No registration is necessary for the webinar. Participants in the workshop (afternoon session) are asked to contact us ( in order to coordinate hands-on work with your datasets or encourage us to focus on your favorite subtopics in data publication. The intention is to promote a community-oriented approach in troubleshooting workflows and exploring SBDI tools, with the objective of improving stakeholder competence and experience in SBDI data publication.
