WeDigBio: Chicago

About this recurring event

Scientists here and around the world need your help! Join us online to transcribe scientific labels from our collections.

A group of volunteers helps with collections data. All are seated at a long table and work their own laptops.

WeDigBio, or Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, is a global event that invites science enthusiasts to help digitize natural history collections.

This year, join us online to preserve centuries of data about life on Earth. You’ll record data on organisms like mammals and insects, virtually meet our scientists, and tune-in for behind-the-scenes tours of Field Museum collections.

This virtual event is free with advance registration.
