About this event series

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

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 (or in-person with limited capacity) to preserve centuries of data about life on Earth. You’ll record data on organisms like plants and insects, meet our scientists, and tune-in for behind-the-scenes tours of Field Museum collections.

For questions about this event, email for more information. Interested in getting more involved with digitizing collections at the Field? Consider joining our Collections Club.
