What is WeDigBio?

Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, or WeDigBio, is a 4-day event that engages participants online and onsite in digitizing natural history collections. Onsite events are hosted by museums, herbaria, universities, and other institutions and enable face-to-face meetups where participants engage with local collections.

Online events engage volunteers from around the world, facilitating the transcription of specimen information from images hosted by transcription platforms, no matter where in the world the volunteers may be.

Mark your calendars! 

The dates for WeDigBio 2016 are October 20-23. Building on the success of WeDigBio 2015, we aim to double our transcription goal this year and reach out to a greater number of countries around the globe. With your help hosting events, attending events, transcribing specimen labels, and spreading the word, we're excited to make this year even more fun and productive! Listen to the webinar we gave as part of the iDigBio webinar series to learn more about our plans for this year's event.
