Digitized collections

At the museum we currently run a digitizing project financed by external funds (museistödet). The project is to photo document our older entomological collections which contain a lot of type specimens. The documentation, consisting of high resolution pictures of each drawer, makes it possible to search the collections via this link [link to Flickr]. These pictures also represent a historical documentation of the status of these collections at the time the photos were taken, making it possible to backtrack the number of specimens and their placement in each drawer.

Some of the collections will be described in more detail through links in the menu to the left on this page, and more collections will be added as they are digitized.

Digitized collections

The project also includes the photo documentation of the primary types in these collections [link to Flickr]. In many cases such photos is enough to establish species affiliation, and to avoid the risks associated with the shipping of material we regard an examination of these photos as the first option.

All pictures will be published on Flickr [link to Flickr] and are free to use for non-commercial purposes (Attribution- NonCommercial).
