This project was a collaboration between the University of Michigan Library, the Fish and Mammal Divisions of the Museum of Zoology and the Fungus Collections of the University Herbarium. It was funded with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
This project had two primary goals:
- the development of increased access to the Great Lakes region Flora and Fauna portions of the Museums collections
- the development of an extensible infrastructure for putting Natural History collections online. The project will explore, prototype and test tools for using the online resources for a variety of scholarly and educational purposes.
The project began in October 2000 and was funded through September 2002.
