Research Observation and Personal Collections (Consortium-Personal Collections)

Personal research data managed directly within data portal and linked to one user profile. 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 with a physical specimen made available to researchers within a public institution. Contact the portal administrator to request permission to manage research observations within this dataset.
