Summary
Abstract: The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) collections place
the region's art, history and culture, and natural history in an Australian and
international context through research, interpretation and collection
development. The MAGNT collections consist of over 30 000 items of art and
craft and material culture, and an estimated 1.2 million natural history
specimens. These collections are a permanent record of the history, artistic
diversity, biological wealth and natural and cultural heritage of the Northern
Territory and the region. MAGNT provides data to the Online Zoological
Collections of Australian Museums (OZCAM) and from there to OBIS Australia and
OBIS.

Quality
Data from OZCAM data providers have not been verified or checked in a
systematic way, although some contributing institutions may have done a more or
less rigorous check of the quality of the data. Data are often sourced from
specimen labels, particularly for old museum specimens and inaccuracy is often
due to this fact.


Access Constraints
Data supplied to OBIS by museums around Australia via OZCAM are freely
accessible by the public. The data supplied may not represent the total
holdings of any one institution as data about incompletely identified
specimens, manuscript names and specimens where a georeference cannot be
calculated have normally been withheld from publication.


Use Constraints
Data users should acknowledge the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern
Territory (MAGNT) and also OZCAM, Australia's Fauna.

Acknowledge the use of specific records from the Australian museum in the form
appearing in the 'Citation' field thereof (if any); and acknowledge the use of
the OBIS facility.

For information purposes, email to obissupport@marine.rutgers.edu the full
citation of any publication made (printed or electronic) that cites OBIS or any
constituent part.

Recognize the limitations of data in OBIS.
