Description

The second round of tiger beetle specimen data transcription is up on Notes from Nature, an online platform where citizen scientists from around the world can collaborate with museums and museum based research projects to transcribe specimen label data. https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/md68135/notes-from-nature-an-inordinate-fondness-for-beetles

This project is part of a 3 year NSF funded grant to complete the curation of the beetle holdings of the Triplehorn collection.

Please consider joining in as a volunteer data transcriber. More info about the beetle curation project and this citizen science initiative in particular can be found on our website: https://u.osu.edu/pinningblock/projects/beetle-curation/
