Best Practices for Digitizing Herbarium Collections

Now available: a new collection of best practices for digitizing herbarium collections. “The 14 modules, each organized in seven to 36 easy-to-follow and customizable tasks, cover everything from setting up an imaging station to georeferencing. They also include methods to organize outreach events for public participation in imaging and data transcription. They are downloadable as Portable Document Format (PDF) and editable word processing files on GitHub and as PDF files at iDigBio. A full description of the workflows and their development, along with editable word processing files of the workflow modules, is available in the September issue of Applications in Plant Sciences.” I went and took a look at the GitHub stuff. You can preview the PDF materials on the site and they are really extensive with plenty of linkouts to other resources.
