Preserving and Digitizing Plant Images:

Linking Plant Images and Databases for Public Access

Completed November 2000


This project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services as a National Leadership Award for preservation and digitization of information. Through this program, IMLS supports "projects to preserve unique library resources of national significance, emphasizing access by researchers beyond the institution undertaking the project, and projects that address the preservation and archiving of digital media."

The purpose of our project is to link plant images with their associated data in TROPICOS, the Missouri Botanical Garden's web database, and make the images and data available online at http://www.tropicos.org. By doing this, we will create a repository for plant images to which other botanical organizations can contribute.
