An acronym rich environment (ARE) 2 Advocating for Collections NSCA Wash DC-based community supporting collections, staff, and research activities. Membership in the NSC Alliance links you to a network of institutions, scientists and other professionals in North America through which you can share news, information and common concerns - and help shape the future of our community. AIBS providing peer-reviewed, vetted information about the biology field and

profession takes action to build the capacity and the leadership of the community to address matters of common concern. 3 From NIBA to the ADBC A diverse group of scientists created the vision of a Networked Integrated Biocollections Alliance (NIBA) to mobilize collections data, increase biodiversity informatics collections skills and knowledge capacity, foster research and educational use of collections data, develop a robust cyber and software infrastructure to support this work, Proposed such to the National Science Foundation (NSF) NIBA Strategic Plan NIBA Implementation Plan Resulted in the program Advancing the Digitization of Biological Collections (ADBC) 4 Biodiversity Collections Network (BCoN) (formerly NIBA) a 5-year NSF funded Research Coordinated Network (RCN) Develop a coordinated, large-scale effort to digitize the nations biological collections, and all that this entails. http://bcon.aibs.org/
