Additional Event Details

Be a part of a worldwide effort to digitize natural history collections! Hosted by the Arkansas Center for Biodiversity Collections and WeDigBio and sponsored by the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the blitz is drop-in from 1 to 4 p.m. Attendees will be learning how to use and using Notes from Nature to transcribe museum (including herbarium) records into digital form for online databases so that the data is more readily useable by the scientific community and general public. Please bring a laptop if you have one! A limited number of laptops will be available for use at the event. 

The Arkansas Center for Biodiversity Collections, the combined natural history collections (Herbarium and Museum of Zoology) at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, works to foster a unified and collaborative setting for education, research, and outreach on a regional scale. This event coincides with the four-day global digitization campaign event sponsored by WeDigBio (Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections).
