RE: RDA Adoption story Natural History Museum of London

Hi Marieke,
Yes, as Anne suggests we’re not yet in a position at the NHM to provide an adoption story I’m afraid. At the moment the museum is in the middle of a major technical upgrade of our collections management system, which makes it hard to get the adoption of the attribution model very high on the CMS team’s priorities in the near future. However I’m in discussions to determine whether it might be applicable to any of our other platforms, so hope to find another adoption use case which would be less dependant on the CMS work being complete.

Re: RDA Adoption story Natural History Museum of London

Hi, yes, sorry. You sent this note earlier. I've copied my contact at
NHML. As far as I know it is too early to really say anything. Matt, can
you comment? iDigBio, might come on line faster. ImpactStory is more of
a second-tier adopter. They wouldn't be able to do anything until
providers of attribution data have adopted.

Post TDWG update

Hello all
This group had an informal lunch meeting during TDWG. The primary outcome of this meeting was that we will begin exploring the creation of a Darwin Core extension for attribution. Representatives of iDigBio were present and agreed to move forward with exploring adoption of our recommendations.

In addition, our recommendations have been submitted for comments here.
