General Observation and Personal Collections (CNALH-Observation)

Personal research data managed directly within data portal. This data node allows researchers to enter, manage, and print labels for their field data before specimens are deposited within a public collection. The records are considered 'observations' until the specimens are formally accessioned and a physical specimen available to researchers within a public institution.
