This past weekend, Oct. 19-20, we held our 3rd Annual WeDigBio event. WeDigBio or Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections is a worldwide citizen science event that mobilizes volunteers to transcribe dark label data on biological collections onto a globally accessible platform.
The event started with some details about our collections and volunteer training.
After becoming transcription experts, the volunteers started transcribing.
Throughout the event, volunteers played games and won prizes from local businesses!
The weekend transcription blitz ended with nearly 2600 records transcribed!
