This Francophone project provides mentoring support for the network of data holders and users in Guinea while completing the digitization and publication of collections from l’Herbier National de Guinée (the National Herbarium of Guinea) and l’Herbier National de Guinée Sérédou-Macenta of l’Institut de Recherche Agronomique de Guinée.

Through a series of outreach and training sessions, GBIF Guinea and GBIF France will bring collections staff up to date on current trends and tools in data cleaning and publishing. The understanding that data holders gain regarding licensing rights and reuse will help reinforce the value of collections digitization and establish a reinvigorated national data sharing network for Guinea. The training course will be made available on GBIF France’s elearning platform enabling it to be reused to reach a broader audience.
