Creating a botanical collection with historical significance in CONTENTdm

Presentation Abstract:
 
When is a flower a cultural artifact? When it was collected by a historical figure and preserved in a herbarium. Learn about the difficulties in digitizing botanical specimens over half a century old. Then find out about the challenges of creating metadata within CONTENTdm that satisfies both botanical researchers and historians, as well as the unique challenges of creating standard place names for botanical collection sites.
