This workshop is for you if you:
•    manage data for a museum collection and would like to learn how to 
use the IPT
•    want to understand more about Darwin Core and Data Sharing Standards
•    would like to understand just what is meant by "Darwin Core Archive 
file (DwC-A)."
•    want to learn how to create or update Darwin Core Archive files 
using the IPT
•    would like to understand just a bit more about where data goes and 
how it gets there once it leaves your collection

Looking forward to seeing you there!,
Deb Paul, et al from the planning team
(with apologies for cross-posting -- but didn't want anyone to miss)
