New database features 710,000 natural history records from Canadian Museum of Nature
Date:3/26/2014

ed 16,000 records annually to its Collections Online portal. Priorities to date have included existing records from the museum's internal databases, type specimens (those used to define a new species), new specimens collected for study by the museum's scientists, and areas of scientific leadership for the museum such as specimens from the Arctic.

"Ultimately, this initiative allows the Canadian Museum of Nature to open up its back rooms to the world, so anybody can go online and look for information about specimens they might be interested in," says Saarela.
