Hello Taxacom,

Darwin Core (DwC) Hour #14 is almost here: An Attribution Darwin Core Extension - What Would That Look Like?<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.idigbio.org_content_darwin-2Dcore-2Dhour-2Dattribution-2Ddarwin-2Dcore-2Dextension-2Dwhat-2Dwould-2Dlook&d=DwMFaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=_ACjGCbvHFKcpC0UQMLaKuxM2mfCJKHqqAEOVM14NUY&m=Df1flCR9_MhLgyvdDNQBUTXyJdJQTl2y6RGBgKGQVBk&s=F1arjCaqaEZNn6AVJCEkzlYDO-Z2OoG_dWqVpz6OqZM&e=>

Overview:  A joint Research Data Alliance (RDA) and TDWG Attribution Working Group<https://github.com/tdwg/attribution/tree/v20180831> present recommendations for an infrastructure that supports a system for tracking curatorial work. Research collections are an important tool for understanding the Earth, its systems, and human interaction. Despite the importance of collections, many are not maintained or curated as thoroughly as we would like. Part of the reason for this is the lack of professional reward for collection, curation, or maintenance. To address this gap in attribution metadata, this Working Group created recommendations for the representation of attribution metadata. These recommendations are discussed in the context of the RDA, TDWG, and existing standards. Please bring your ORCID<https://orcid.org/>! (or get one :-)

Future work includes (1) adapting these recommendations to the specific needs of TDWG and the natural history collections community, which could include development of a Darwin Core extension, (2) recommendations on how to best record agents, activities, and entities in collections management platforms such that these data can be shared, and (3) recommendations and possible solutions to help accelerate the process of reconciling agents and their activities in legacy data.
