General Observation and Personal Collections (MP)

Personal research data managed directly within data portal. This data node allows researchers to enter, manage, and print labels for their field data before specimens are deposited within a public collection. The records are considered 'observations' until the specimens are formally accessioned and a physical specimen available to researchers within a public institution.
