Field Collector's Notebook DB CMS
Field Collector's Notebook DB Database:
The Archives of The New York Botanical Garden contain a growing number of field notebooks used by scientists to record the specimens collected in the field. These preliminary notes are often accompanied by hand drawn maps, sketches and even diary notes which record the route of the expedition. This database allows users to search by collector names and geographic location which is most often the name of the country or region collected in. A number of field notebooks from the collection have been digitized and can be viewed on the Mertz Digital website under the category headings Archives of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Britton and Collector’s Field Notebooks and Notes http://mertzdigital.nybg.org/
