deprecated Natural Collections Descriptions

Abbreviation: NCD


General Information
This record was deprecated on Jan. 10, 2021 for the following reason(s): The Natural Collections Description data standard was an unratified draft, whose development has been discontinued.

Natural Collections Description (NCD) (A data standard for exchanging data describing natural history collections) is a proposed data standard for describing collections of natural history materials at the collection level; one NCD record describes one entire collection. The NCD standard covers all types of natural history collections, such as specimens, original artwork, archives, observations, library materials, datasets, photographs or mixed collections such as those that result from expeditions and voyages of discovery. NCD is a draft standard that was submitted for ratification in 2008. Personnel changes in several critical roles caused the ratification process to stall, so the specification has remained as a draft since. The in 2016 reestablished Collection Descriptions Interest Group has decided to discontinue the development of NCD in favour of a new TDWG Collections Description metadata standard.
