Presentation given by Vladimir Blagoderov at the SPNHC symposium: Specimens Full Circle: Collection to Digitization to Data Use. 21 May 2015.


Images of specimens are considered as the most important part of digitization and by far is the most interesting step in workflow. However huge variety of specimens in natural history collections and limited resources call for optimization of imaging. Therefore imaging techniques must depend on research question and expected curatorial benefits for each particular digitization project. Based on experience of Digital Collection Programme run in NHM I demonstrate value of differential approach.
