Koleksi Serangga Papua: collection management and digitization

Abstract: Since the end of 2015, the staff of Kelompok Entomologi Papua (KEP) and the Universitas Cenderawasih (UNCEN) in Waena are responsible for the care of the magnificent entomology collection Koleksi Serangga Papua (KSP). In order to boost the professional management this large collection requires, KEP members co-organized in May 2017 a short Collection Management training, together with UNCEN, the Papua Insects Foundation and Naturalis Biodiversity Center. Also, the four organizations launched a pilot-digitization project (data and image capture), in order to facilitate access to the collection for scientists and students, promoting collection-based research and ensuring the preservation of the KSP specimens. This paper gives a short report of the activities during the Collection Management training and the takeoff of the digitization project.
Rangkuman: Sejak akhir tahun 2015, staf Kelompok Entomologi Papua (KEP) dan Universitas Cenderawasih (UNCEN) di Waena bertanggung jawab atas perawatan koleksi entomologi yang luar biasa dari Koleksi Serangga Papua (KSP). Untuk meningkatkan pengelolaan yang professional yang dibutuhkan oleh koleksi besar ini, anggota KEP menyelenggarakan sebuah pelatihan Manajemen Koleksi singkat di bulan Mei 2017, bersama dengan UNCEN, the Papua Insects Foundation dan Naturalis Biodiversity Center. Selain itu, keempat organisasi tersebut meluncurkan proyek digitalisasi percontohan (pengambilan data dan gambar), bertujuan untuk memudahkan akses koleksi bagi para ilmuwan dan siswa, mempromosikan penelitian berbasis koleksi dan memastikan pelestarian spesimen KSP. Makalah ini memberikan laporan singkat tentang kegiatan-kegiatan selama pelatihan Manajemen Koleksi dan awal pelaksanaan dari proyek digitalisasi.
