Studbook Keeper News! Keeping Studbook Keepers Up-to- date with the latest News Flashes!
What is Studbook Keeper News? First step towards the community-developed ZIMS vision of integrated, far-more efficient and timely studbook data Previously Studbook Keepers had to rely on institutions responding to periodic questionnaires to provide updated data on their species of interest Studbook Keeper News allows studbook keepers to easily see the current, or historical, events for their species as entered by institutions into their own animal records on ZIMS.
Why Does it Matter? Many studbooks are a few years behind in events Impacts management recommendations, especially for species with short generation periods Many breeding recommendations are relying on outdated information
Historical Data Also allows checking for historical data on their species More institutions are joining ISIS and incorporating their data, some which may be quite old, into the ISIS database Studbook Keeper News allows studbook keepers to close some missing gaps and solve pedigree mysteries
Into the Future Studbook Keeper News is a working prototype for future, more automatic, studbook updating within ZIMS Starting with basic studbook-information- update service now
How do Studbook Keepers get Studbook Keeper News? Institutions – Need to give their staff members who are Studbook Keepers access to ZIMS by making them a ZIMS Users and providing login status Regional Associations – – Need to provide ISIS with an updated list Studbook Keeper name Studbook Keepers institution Species covered by the studbook
Regional Association Studbook Keeper Setup – the winner Regional Association logs into ZIMS and adds existing ZIMS Users as your regional studbook keepers – ISIS can provide training to do this – ISIS will work with institutions to get their studbook keepers appropriate ZIMS access – Studbook Keepers cannot be added until they have ZIMS access at their facilities
Regional Association Studbook Keeper Setup – second place Regional Association sends ISIS an Excel, or similar file, of their studbook keepers and ISIS will set them up for ISIS member institutions – Studbook Keeper name – Studbook Keepers institution – Species covered
Regional Association Studbook Keeper Setup – third best Regional Association does not contact ISIS with the information – ISIS will fill in the information with the best data we currently have available to us – Difficult and costly for ISIS to track studbooks assigned by each Regional Association Currently 20 Regional Associations with studbooks AZA has ~700 managed studbooks
What will Associations See? (This is hypothetical information)
What will ZIMS Users See? (This is hypothetical information)
Refining What is Displayed Institution – Review activity for a single institution Single Animal – Review Activity for a single animal Event Type – Birth – Death – Move Event Date Range – When the event occurred – Useful for recent activity Recorded Date Range – When the event was recorded – Useful for catching historical activity
