This page provides resources and information for the series of digitization training workshops being conducted by iDigBio as well as a plethora of digitization information and resources. Included is a growing list of links to documents, websites, videos, presentations, and other important information related to biological collection digitization.

iDigBio Introduction

"Introduction to iDigBio" 02:04
More than 1,600 natural history collections across the United States house over 1 billion biological specimens ranging from fungi to fish to fossils. This video describes the iDigBio project. It explains why digitized information and ready access to it are important, provides an overview of the digitization process and highlights some of the challenges faced when working with different types of natural history collections.

Recommendations for the Acquisition, Processing, and Archiving of Digital Media

iDigBio has created recommendations for capturing, processing, and storing digital media.

"Imaging Workflows for the Digitization of Dry-preserved Vertebrate Specimens" 07:25
This video details the four primary task clusters associated with digitization and imaging including selecting specimens, pre-digitization specimen curation and staging, image capture, and image processing. The video also gives specific tips for imaging dry collections including deciding which specimens and views to capture, imaging tools and equipment, and image stacking.
"Digitization Workflows Overview" 07:21
This workflow video offers an introduction into the digitization process, the rationale behind why museums are digitizing their collections, how iDigBio is facilitating the digitization movement, and what the current challenges are for museum digitization.
"Digitizing Wet Collections" 04:34
This instructional video details the five step process the Ichthyology Collection at the Florida Museum of Natural History uses to digitize their collection including: selecting specimens, image capturing, image processing, electronic data capture and georefrencing, and curating specimens. The video also gives specific tips for imaging wet collections including squeeze box use, what imaging equipment to use, and what views to capture for use in taxonomic identification.
"Digitizing Herbarium Collections" 07:34
This video details the five step process the University of Florida Herbarium uses for digitizing specimens: specimen staging, image capturing, specimen image processing, electronic data capture and georeferencing, and specimen curating. The video also features the Valdosta State Herbarium's image processing and data capture and georeferencing workflow.
