External Email - Exercise Caution

Hello TMSers!


My institution is exploring the possibility of starting to work with a non-profit organization called Local Contexts. Local Contexts supports Indigenous communities to manage their intellectual and cultural property, cultural heritage, environmental data and genetic resources within digital environments. One of the core aspects of LC is to use their Traditional Knowledge labels in our database.


Is anyone in this group already working with Local Contexts and using the Traditional Knowledge labels? If so, I would very much like to discuss it with you so we can make a better-informed decision of how to proceed with using this model in TMS.


Many thanks,



Jennifer M. Day
