WeDigBio 2020

WeDigBio is right around the corner.


We are partnering with BioSpex and Zooniverse/Notes From Nature to transcribe records for WeDigBio 2020.

Help the University of Colorado transcribe label data for some of its 550,000 plus specimens. Digitizing specimens helps us to open our collection cabinets to the general public and enables our biodiversity data to be used by research scientists around the globe. WeDigBio is a four day event to help create digital data about specimens in natural history collections from around the world.

We will update this page with links to access our specimens closer to the event.

Notes from Nature Specimen Link Coming Soon

In the interim you can start to familiarize yourself with the digitization process using these slides.
