Abstract

When approached by an international team of researchers investigating the lack of global biodiversity metadata, two librarians jumped at the chance to collaborate. In this lightning talk, the presenters will share the story of this serendipitous collaboration to improve metadata records associated with genomic sequence data, highlight the expertise that librarians as information professionals and data curators bring to this kind of research, discuss plans to host a series of curate-o-thons, and seek attendee feedback.
