  Subject: [tdwg] iDigBio Webinar: Mass Digitizing a Working Herbarium using a 
conveyor belt - Sylvia Orli from Smithsonian


  Hi Everyone,

  Wondering how we can scale up digitization? What can we learn from 
institutions trying industrial methods?
  Join us for our next webinar at iDigBio coming up this Tuesday October 18th, 
from 3 - 4 PM EDT.

  Subject: Mass Digitizing a Working Herbarium using a conveyor belt: 
Workflows, Strategies, Challenges
  Presenter: Sylvia Orli, IT and Digitization Manager, US Herbarium
  Day and Time: Tuesday October 18th, from 3 - 4 PM EDT
  Where: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/datamgmt

  Abstract: The US Herbarium is attempting to digitize over one million 
botanical specimens in 14 months using a digitization conveyor belt. Given that 
the smallest problem in process can result in huge data errors, the workflows 
and strategies are continually revised to create a streamline of 16-20,000 
specimen images and data records per week. The challenge is to do this in a 
working herbarium where the landscape can change from week to week.  I’ll be 
discussing our workflows, tips and tricks to keep the data flowing efficiently, 
and lessons learned from a fast-paced digitization project.

  Relevant reading.
