Deb Paul Talks About iDigBio at Entomology 2015

If  you’re an entomologist, then you’ve probably heard the acronym “iDigBio” being used here and there, but what the heck does it stand for?

Turns out it’s something quite neat and very relevant to entomologists everywhere: iDigBio = Integrated Digitized Biocollections, and it is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

In the following video, Deb Paul, an iDigBio Digitization Specialist, provides a brief overview of the organization.

If you’d like to know more about iDigBio and learn what the organization might be able to do for you, visit their website to learn more: https://www.idigbio.org. You can also follow them on Twitter at @iDigBio.

This video was made by Derek A. Woller, a PhD candidate in the Song Lab of Insect Systematics and Evolution at Texas A&M University. His research is focused on attempting to better comprehend the speciation process in a fascinating group of scrub-lovin’ grasshoppers confined to xeric habitats in the southeastern U.S. He has aspirations of working as a curator or collections manager in a museum someday. Until then, in his spare time (of which he typically has none), he makes videos like these and enjoys doing outreach events with the public.
