Thanks @emeyke and tkarim - I’m glad to see the interest in this idea. The Arctos example is a really excellent one. It shows how a collection management system can be a tool for curating information from the side of the knowledge graph - ownership and responsibility for data owned by the institution/researcher, combined with the ability to mesh with BOLD and ecological data systems. I know that some other collection management systems (including EarthCape and Specify) have similar interests.
An interlinked question is how we know which of the potentially many records describing a given collection is a) the most authoritative and b) the most current. This ties in with other topics: 3.1. Pathways and tools for publishing collection records (TECHNOLOGY) and 4.1. Ownership of information for each collection (GOVERNANCE).
