14 14 Imaging Blitz Florida State University September 2014

15 15 60 hours of prep work by herbarium staff and students 3 imaging stations 22 volunteers 2 four-hour imaging shifts with one hour for lunch. 125 specimens imaged per hour, on average, per station 3,000 local plant specimens imaged in total 1 very cool water bottle gift for volunteers Endless research possibilities for digitized herbarium specimens

16 16 Blitz Kits protocols relevant best practice and standards documents artwork for advertising and incentive gifts, post-event surveys equipment lists example recruitment and training documents.

23 23 Origin of BIOSPEX Public Participation Workshop Participants identified need for system that would lower barriers to creation and management of public participation projects, make data flow more easily among relevant platforms, build capacity for recruiting and engaging with public participants, and enable co-created citizen science projects.
