This weekend marks the holding of the Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections (WeDigBio), which is spotlighting Zooniverse’s Notes from Nature project among four others that also seek to digitize natural specimens. According to the WeDigBio website:
WeDigBio, Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, is an event that will engage participants in digitizing biodiversity research collections. Participants onsite at local collections, and around the world via online transcription platforms, will collaboratively and interactively transcribe specimen information. The thousands of label transcriptions from this four-day event will enhance the span of biodiversity research across time, taxa, and geographies.
You can join the event simply by participating in Notes from Nature over the weekend. Have fun, and thanks!
