Need for rapid imaging…

NSF grant in 2006

flooding

acidic oak cabinets

in situ etching

Byne’s effluorescence

physical forces (overcrowded conditions, improper containers)

Relocate to ESC

Class of 1954 Environmental
Science Center (2001)



facility is continually monitored &
logged for T & RH (60º F and
47.5%RH)

Imaging of brachiopod specimens


Rehouse in systematic collection

How do you type in the specimen number

while taking three identified
-
orientation
images of the specimen (re
-
orienting each
time), convert those images to web
-
ready
files, and attach the cluster of images to
the EMu object record for est. 75,000
brachiopods in three years?
