Congratulations to our very own Siyabonga Zamisa (Research Technician: Database) for winning best Novice Speaker at the 85th South African Museums Association National Conference for his presentation on the Workbench: A tool in Specify to import Data.
This year’s SAMA National Conference took place virtually on the 7th and 8th of September 2021 with a central theme focusing on “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine”. The theme called for museums, their professionals and communities to create, imagine and share new practices of (co-)creation of value, new business models for cultural institutions and innovative solutions for social, economic and environmental challenges of the present.
Mr Zamisa’s presentation centred on how researchers can use the Workbench as a tool to import data onto the Specify platform in order to facilitate free and open access to biodiversity data worldwide to underpin sustainable development.
