November 30th Webinar
iSamples Working Group 2: Use Cases
Presenters: Andrea Thomer (Univ. of Illinois) & Sarah Ramdeen (Univ. of N. Carolina)
The mission of the iSamples Use Cases Working Group is to collect many small use cases that help capture and express the breadth of earth scientists' work with physical samples. The ultimate goal of the group is to articulate life cycle practices for different users to aid in developing policies or recommendations for sample identification, citation, and management best practices, etc. This webinar will discuss ongoing and planned efforts within the working group and will invite audience feedback.
