Imaging of herbarium material

The Mellon Foundation has repeatedly funded projects to facilitate imaging and making accessible metadata accompanying selected herbarium specimens (mainly types) in the TCD herbarium. Images of material from Africa have been made available at under the African Plants Initiative. Images of the rest of the collection are currently being developed. The end product of this process will be a significant digital archive allowing on-line access (via JSTOR) to many of the very numerous type and historically important specimens in the TCD herbarium as well as helping to meet obligations in relation to data repatriation.
