Subject: Video: Extending Lifecycle of Scientific Field Notes
Date: Mon, 30 Mar 2015 20:50:36 -0400
In this talk from CNI's December meeting, Riccardo Ferrante and Rusty Russell (both of the Smithsonian Institution) describe the effort to establish access to thousands of scientific field books, some dating well back into the 19th century, through online catalog and digitized collections. The project has most recently incorporated crowd-sourced transcriptions and additional access to its collections has been added through the Digital Public Library of America and the Biodiversity Heritage Library. Extending the Lifecycle of Scientific Field Notes: Making Hidden Collections Reusable is now available online:
