The objectives of iSamples WG5 are to:
- develop a set of criteria for which samples should be preserved;
- develop a set of criteria for which collections should be digitized first;
- develop a set of best practices for digital archiving of sample data/metadata;
- research policies on what collections do when their samples get too small.
These findings will be published in a white paper/report to the iSamples RCN and shared with the broader community through iSamples outreach efforts.
