What can I contribute to MMI?

The MMI site is designed to be a dynamic community, built on contributions from people like you. There are a variety of ways you can contribute content to the site. We encourage the participation of everyone who has an interest in this area.

Here are some ways you can contribute to MMI. Many of these activities require that you become a member, and we will review your contribution before posting it. Please let us know if you have any trouble!

You can even do most of these without being a member, though we screen all content before it is posted. Our help system is very complete, with step-by-step instructions for most tasks.

Experienced members can do even more, like

  • Create your own marine metadata community on the MMI groups pages (ask us how!)
  • Contribute a citation for a publication of interest to the community (ask us how!)
  • Help us edit and publish community-contributed content
  • Participate in team telecon calls (which are mostly quite fun!)

Or, tell us how you would like to participate! We are always interested in improving collaboration and exchange among members of the community.
