Butler University Friesner Herbarium Digital Collection
The Friesner Herbarium digital collection project is a multiyear
effort to link label information from our Indiana specimens with
images in a searchable electronic format. Our goal is to
increase access to, awareness of and use by all Indiana citizens of
the valuable historical botanical information contained with the
Friesner Herbarium. We now have 20,000 images available
online and hope to image the remainder of our Indiana collection
This project is part of the Indiana Memory Digital Library (http://www.in.gov/memories/collections.html)
and is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum
and Library Services (http://www.imls.gov )under the
provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered
by the Indiana State Library and Butler University.
