Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

One of the central features in the ScienceBase Item Core Model is an integration of various types of people and organization contacts associated with items. Contact types designate a contact with a particular meaning. Currently, all contact types from both source materials and the needs expressed by individual communities are pulled together into a single contact types vocabulary. Should the list grow too large or complex, contact types will be broken out into individual code lists based on source and usage.

The current list of contact types can be access in the ScienceBase Vocabulary under item/contact/type here
