2022 herbarium digitalization project

Help the UOG Herbarium go digital!

A few minutes of your time can help showcase Micronesia's flora to the world!

The UOG Herbarium is building a digital database of its 60,000 physical plant specimens from Guam and Micronesia, and we need your help!
Simply view a photo of a label online and transcribe the information. Each entry takes just a few minutes. Complete one or 100 — a little goes a long way! 

Are you ready to volunteer? Just follow these steps: 

  1. Watch our tutorial video below.
  2. Click here to access Zooniverse, our digital entry database. 
  3. (Optional) If you want your entries tracked toward earning stickers or for service-learning hours, create a Zooniverse account by clicking "Register" in the upper right corner. (If you're a student, enter your school name before your name, for example: JFK Matt Santos.)
  4. Click "Classify" to get started transcribing. A quick sidebar tutorial is available, if needed, every step of the way.
