Webinar - Exposing Geological Assets in the National Digital Catalog - November 29 at 10 am MT

The NGGDPP will host a webinar focusing on the National Digital Catalog, which provides access to over 3 million metadata records describing physical collections, samples, and data preserved by state geological surveys. Topics will include metadata generation, increasing exposure and use of cataloged information, examples, file storage and access, and future plans for improvements. Use of the National Digital Catalog Dashboard to interact with cataloged resources will be shown. 

State geological surveys are encouraged to attend the webinar to learn methods for improving cataloged information for legacy and active preservation projects.
