WeDigBio 2021: Herbarium Digitization Event
Scientists from the University of Tennessee and around the world need your help!
Join us in transcribing scientific label data from our collections using online and computer tools. WeDigBio Events will be held online daily from Friday, October 15th–Saturday, October 16th.
You will be part of a worldwide effort to digitize centuries of data about life on Earth. The GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen Team will focus on mosses and lichens collected around the world over the past 150+ years, housed at 25 universities, museums, and gardens located across the United States. The GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen TCN WeDigBio Event will focus on transcribing specimens from six of these collections. Participants will have an opportunity to meet scientists, join in on behind-the-scenes tours, and hear talks about the significance of scientific collections!
WeDigBio is ideal for teens aged 15+ and adults.
