How digitisate biodiversity collections?

This diagram shows the digitisation workflow used in the BOS Arthropod Collection (Department of Biología de Organismos y Sistemas, University of Oviedo, Spain). You can learn more about it in the presentation http://www.slideshare.net/antonio_tb/iberian-odonata-distribution-bos-arthropod-collection and in our article in ZooKeys journal (which published the workflow):

Torralba-Burrial A, Ocharan FJ (2013) Iberian Odonata distribution: data of the BOS Arthropod Collection (University of Oviedo, Spain). ZooKeys 306: 37–58. doi: 10.3897/zookeys.306.5289
