Abstract
    Taxonomies are always changing; hence providing reliable taxonomic metadata is a difficult task, especially when working with multiple databases containing data on hundreds of organisms. In this paper we describe how taxonomists at the Atlantic Reference Centre of the Huntsman Marine Science Centre in St. Andrews, New Brunswick and scientific data managers at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia prepare organism names in biological databases for global internet access via portals such as the Ocean Biogeographic Information System and the Global Biodiversity Facility.
