Specimen transcription volunteer day!
Friday, Oct. 20, 9-5
We will be participating in the worldwide event to digitize specimens in natural history collections. This effort will help make collection data for our specimens available to everyone online!
The transcription portion of the event will run from 9-4 in the Massey Herbarium (directions). Volunteers are welcome for any amount of time and can bring their own laptop or use one of ours. No special software or previous training is needed.
We will have a live uplink with other participating institutions and will have games and prizes for volunteers. Our botanical temporary tattoos for the event just arrived!
We will celebrate at the end of the day with an Herbarium Tea. Food, coffee, and tea will be provided. Contact Jordan (email; 540-231-6768) with questions.
