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 Museum Victoria 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.
