I am updating and digitizing the information contained in the Albion College Herbarium. A herbarium is a reference library of plant specimens.
I have learned that plant names aren't as stable as I thought, and I have learned much about different plant families.
I mentioned to Dr. Dan Skean that I wanted to do an internship elsewhere, he suggested looking into FURSCA and this project. It will reorganize and update the herbarium, while at the same time uploading the information contained within the herbarium to the Internet. That will make the info easier to access.
I'm currently working on tagging the specimens in preparation for digitizing them.I expect that I'll be done digitizing ahead of schedule.
