*Surveys: Integrating Changes into Collections Databases: Challenges and 

The purpose of these surveys are to gather information from the 
collections community regarding your experience incorporating changes 
into your local collections databases. Our goals are to compile and 
sharefindings at /SPNHC-TDWG 2018/ 
<https://doi.org/10.3897/biss.2.26003>//as part of the SPNHC symposium 
<https://doi.org/10.3897/biss.2.26003>: Challenges for Implementing 
Collections Data Quality Feedback: synthesizing the community experience.

Our interests are in the skills, processes, and resources needed (or 
missing) when collections staff work to integrate data from aggregators 
and/or crowd-sourced transcriptions back into their local databases. We 
plan to share the critical information collected in these surveys to 
help current and future programs design and implement improved data 
integration and data quality efforts.Many changes might need to be 
integrated into collection databases. These two surveys focus on :

  * data quality feedback suggestions from aggregators, and
  * information provided by crowdsourcing efforts (e.g., online
    transcription platforms),

Please take either questionnaire, or both, as is appropriate. Each 
survey is estimated to take a maximum of 5 to 10 minutes.

/Results will be shared at //SPNHC-TDWG 2018/ 
<https://doi.org/10.3897/biss.2.26003>/and with you as well if you 
provide contact information. /
