Symposium and Panel Discussion at the Eastern Branch EntSoc 2019 Meeting

Title: The Digital Future of Entomology

Much of the world’s biological collections are locked away in cabinets, cases and jars, largely inaccessible to the public. Here we’ll explore digitization efforts, which promise to "free" these resources, learn exactly what "digitization" means, and discuss the current and future prospects of digitization in entomology.
