Institutions that house biodiversity collections are encouraged to participate in the Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections Event. The event encourages citizen scientists and the public to assist in the digitization of natural history collections. Organizations can post images of specimens with their labels on a partner transcription platforms for transcription or host an on-site transcription event.
During its second year, WeDigBio 2015 aims to expand its reach. In 2015, thousands of citizen scientists from more than 50 countries transcribed specimen labels. This year, WeDigBio is expanding to include more onsite events and participants, more online participants from new parts of the world, and resources to help make the event even more fun, educational, and productive.
