Summary of MVZ curatorial activities performed by undergraduates, both paid and work-for-credit, and their collective output over 10 years (1 June 2005 to 31 May 2015). Because the museum’s specimen data are freely available online (http://arctosdb.org, http://vertnet.org, http://gbif.org, http://www.idigbio.org), these student efforts benefit not just the museum but also the broader scientific community. Data collection details are available in S1 Text.
