About this book

Presented as a National Science Foundation workshop at the North American Paleontological Conference, Washington, DC, June 7-14, 1996. The workshop was the outgrowth of discussions within and outside of the Research Collections in Systematics and Ecology (RCSE) program at the National Science Foundation on the need for community-wide standards for management of invertebrate palaeontology collections.

The workshop set out to meet three related objectives. First, to gather quantitative data on the size and status of North American invertebrate paleontological collections for the first time in a decade. Second, to develop common standards and definitions for collection acquisition, management, and curation that would serve the invertebrate paleontological community and also accurately represent that community to the rest of the world. Third, to discuss the problems of computerization and databasing of collections and attempt to develop a standard data model.
