Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, or WeDigBio, is a 4-day event that engages participants online and onsite in digitizing natural history collections.
Onsite events are hosted by museums, herbaria, universities, and other institutions and enable face-to-face meetups where participants engage with local collections. Find onsite events near you on this page: https://www.wedigbio.org/event-list
The Natural History and Collections Club at Oregon State University is hosting an onsite event at OSU Corvallis campus, in conjunction with the OSU Herbarium, Oregon State Arthropod Collection, and the OSU Fish, Bird, and Mammal Collection.
Online events engage volunteers from around the world, facilitating the transcription of specimen information from images hosted by transcription platforms, no matter where in the world the volunteers may be. Online events are via the transcription centers found on the Find a Project page: https://www.wedigbio.org/find-a-project
WeDigBio events occur each October (this year is 19-22 October 2017) though you can transcribe specimens, play our games, and use our educational materials all year long!
