From the video, 'GBIF: La biblioteca de la vida'

Building on SiB Colombia’s earlier success in developing stylish and substantive videos, this collaboration with GBIF Spain aims to produce new learning and promotional resources that serve to bridge one of the linguistic gaps in the GBIF network.

A promotional animated video serves as the centrepiece, highlighting the importance of sharing data through GBIF in simple language that increases the context and relevance for Spanish-speaking communities. An accompanying toolkit that includes movie scripts, graphics, interview formats and multimedia reference materials, will assist other nodes and communities to make videos for their own communities.

Furthermore, four video capsules were also produced interviewing GBIF users in Colombia and Spain. The topics handled were: publication process through SiB Colombia, managing natural history collections with Elisya, experiences creating data papers and experiences of using data published trough GBIF. By building a wiki, the project team seeks to spark greater engagement with Spanish-speaking communities across the GBIF network.
