Several grants have been written by Peggy & MVZ, funding has yet to be acquired
Continue to work on funding as this is a time intensive process, identify best method to store and catalogue data/specimens.
FF will work with Erica in December to come up with a proposed strategy. — e-mailed Erica today
Erica Krimmel’s “Sagehen Collections Activity Report, 2014” (http://sagehen.ucnrs.org/Documents/collections/Collections%20Activity%20Report-2014.pdf ) includes an Appendix: “Collections Digitization Memo to the UCNRS”. This might be a useful point of departure.
What are the specimens being used for and how are they being housed? Stromberg did a survey, looking at this. Link to survey results from the project page.
Setting up photographic database – MVZ has good database, might be appropriate database to tie into.
iDigBio is good solution
