Herbarium Project Cake

As Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T)‘s Archiving conference opens tomorrow, a reminder of the scope of imaging projects for collections.

From Don Williams, part of the Smithsonian Institution‘s celebration of their National Herbarium Collection Digitization Project (4 million items scanned). Cake (right), and the item (left) I found based on the cake’s ‘metadata’. Cake photo courtesy of Ken Rahaim.
