Materials developed through the Biodiversity Collections Network will be archived in this section of the website.  Additionally, we hope this section of the website can become a place to share other community materials and documents that will contribute to the development of a sustainable, networked community of practice.

Overview of BCoN


Outreach Documents

The BCoN Collections Communications Working Group has identified a need to compile existing outreach documents that the biodiversity collections and science communities may use to educate decision-makers and the general public about the nature of biodiversity collections-based science, including the benefits derived from digitizing specimens and their associated data. This section of the BCoN website is where documents are being shared.

If you or your organization would like to use these materials to support any of your efforts, please do so. All that is asked is that you properly credit the source organization, and send us a note to let us know how you are using the document.

If you or your organization would like to share outreach materials with the community, please contact Jyotsna Pandey. Please note, outreach materials are not limited to printed documents. We would also like to build a library of online materials (e.g. podcast or YouTube programs).
