<br>Note that the ADBCIT-L listserv should not be used to submit User Services tickets to iDigBio (e.g., site down, authentication issues). A separate list has been created for that purpose. A form on the iDigBio.org website (https://www.idigbio.org/contact/Website_feedback) accepts User Services issues related to the site or digitization questions, and routes the issues to iDigBio support personnel.
