ICEDIG Herbaria Sheet Metadata Workflow

This is an experimental enhancement and annotation workflow for the Zenodo ICEDIG herbaria sheet corpus. It was built automatically from individual herbaria sheet deposits in Zenodo and supports normalization of metadata, which varies according to contributing institutions. Improved metadata consistency is important for the flexibility and reliability of searches that the repository can support. Annotation enables enrichment of the corpus through ongoing contribution by the scientific community.

This project also supports research into cataloguing of scientists, including collectors and identifiers, in order to develop tools for automating the gathering of person instances in biodiversity literature.
