Set down your *coffee* and get a load of our *fevered* pace! After only 17 months, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History Dept of Botany working in partnership with Smithsonian Digitization has achieved the previously unimaginable milestone of digitizing and transcribing its 1,000,000th botanical specimen!!!
Once we’ve worked out the details for the Physical Workflow to ensure that the collections objects are moved safely and efficiently to and from the digitization work space, we turn our attention to the imaging workflow.
This blog post is the first in a multi-part series looking in detail at each workflow for Mass Digitization projects managed by the Digitization Program Office’s MD team at the Smithsonian.
