ABCD - Access to Biological Collections Data - Schema is a "common data specification for biological collection units, including living and preserved specimens, along with field observations". It is intended to support the "exchange and integration of detailed primary collection and observation data".
ABCD provides a standardized set of element names and their definition for scientists and curators to use in recording both specimen-specific and collection-specific data.
The standard is both comprehensive and general. It contains a wide range of data elements that could be used in a collection database, but a single museum would only use a fraction of the elements that met the needs of their discipline and practices.
"The elements and concepts that are used provide as much compatibility as is possible with other standards in the field of biological collection data.... The data specification is cast as an XML schema". Available in English only.
Culturable is designed as an agile, international, and specialized tool linking professionals.

From the Web site: "L'irruption des NTIC dans le monde des archives, surtout dans celui des archives historiques, peut susciter des interrogations éthiques nouvelles, voire des conflits d'intérêts d'un genre nouveau. Si certains de ces problèmes sont du même ordre que ceux auxquels doivent faire face les gestionnaires d'archives courantes et intermédiaires, d'autres sont propres aux professionnels de la conservation illimitée des documents à des fins scientifiques et culturelles. À défaut de fournir des réponses définitives, on essaiera ici de recenser l'ensemble des questions posées et de discerner qui doit y répondre."
