The Natural History Museum of London’s Library and Archives has been the keeper of some of world’s greatest insights into the natural world since its opening in 1881. Now, you can help researchers, academics, historians and artists uncover some of nature’s greatest secrets. According to the website, “a rich reservoir of scientific, historical and social research data is locked in the handwritten documents, illustrations and artwork collections. Through the projects made available via DUNA we want to harness the power of the crowd to unleash this data via tools such as transcription and tagging and make it digitally discoverable, accessible and open to all for the first time.” Learn more HERE.
