The Arkansas Center for Biodiversity Collections (ACBC) is hosting it's 4th annual Transcription Blitz on October 18th! Join us as we participate in the Worldwide Digitization of Biocollections (WeDIGBio) annual blitz to transcribe as many biodiversity specimens as possible. The A-State even will have games, food, and prizes while you help us transcribe data! We will be using www.notesfromnature.org to enter specimen label data from plants in herbaria across Arkansas. You are welcome to check out the website and databasing platform ahead of time. It is fun and easy to use and we will be offering short training sessions the day of the event. Stop by for a few minutes, a few hours, or stay the whole time!
