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 2018 are October 18-21. Building on the success of years past, we aim to increase our transcription goals this year and reach out to a greater number of countries around the globe. With your help hosting an event, attending events, transcribing specimen labels and spreading the word, we're excited to make this year even more fun and productive!
