This year we will be transcribing INHS Insects. 

 

     Members of the public are invited to one of the many transcription parties that will be held during the Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections (WeDigBio) Event. The WeDigBio Event will transform the handwritten or typewritten data sequestered on the labels of plant, fungi, insect, fish, and fossil specimens into an open, globally accessible, digital resource.    

     Our local event offers a social setting where people can contribute and learn about our herbarium. Members of the public can also contribute from the comfort of their own home. Register and ask how!

Register for Friday
