Welcome

The Otago Museum and the University of Otago are glad to welcome you to the 2018 joint meeting of the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC) and Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG), held from 25 August to the 2 September in Dunedin, New Zealand. The theme of this inaugural joint meeting is 'Collections & Data in an Uncertain World', allowing delegates to explore the strategies and practices that may mitigate the risk to both the physical collections and the data derived from them. We look forward to welcoming you to Dunedin.
