Arizona State University: ASU Biocollections grant fuels digitization of millions of specimen records

Arizona State University: ASU Biocollections grant fuels digitization of millions of specimen records. “Arizona State University knows a thing or two about natural history. The ASU Natural History Collections are composed of nine different collections — ranking among the largest collections of Sonoran desert biota in the world. Thousands of specimens are tucked into trays, drawers and cupboards. And, while there will always be a need for accumulating and storing natural history specimens, digital access represents an increasingly urgent need in the world of research, education and innovation.”
