We are excited to introduce the first professional development opportunity offered by the iDigBio Digitization Academy: Introduction to Biodiversity Specimen Digitization.
This free, online course is focused on introducing the creation of digital data about biodiversity specimens to those who are just beginning this activity.
iDigBio, Specify Software Project, and the Biodivesity Institute at University of Kansas joined forces the week of August 12–16, 2013 to offer its first “progressive” Specify workshop. The recent release of Specify 6.5 made the event a timely adventure. Twenty on-site participants representing 16 institutions were joined by up to 20 remote attendees for the occasion. The workshop began with basic installation of Specify, followed by four days of progressively advanced topics.
