The Notices are specific tools for institutions and researchers which support the recognition of Indigenous interests in collections and data. There are four Notices: the TK (Traditional Knowledge) Notice and the BC (Biocultural) Notice align to the TK and BC Labels.  There are two Institution Notices; the Attribution Incomplete Notice and the Open to Collaboration Notice.  The Notices are a mechanism for researchers and institutional staff to identify Indigenous collections and Indigenous interests in data.  The Notices can function as place-holders on collections, data, or in a sample field until a TK or a BC Label is added by a community. To use TK & BC Notices, you will need to register with the Local Contexts Hub which will generate your Notice, connect project metadata to it, and send a notification about the use to the relevant community.
