Supercharge your biodiversity collection's education and outreach activities this October 18–21 with WeDigBio 2018.  The WeDigBio support team just published a short blog post that positions onsite event hosts for success.  Check it out at https://wedigbio.org/content/ready-make-wedigbio-2018-event-best-ever <https://wedigbio.org/content/ready-make-wedigbio-2018-event-best-ever>.  And if you are teaching this semester, consider adding WeDigBio activities to your syllabus. Personally, I’ve had a lot of success doing the activities posted at https://wedigbio.org/content/educational-exercises <https://wedigbio.org/content/educational-exercises> in my Field Botany class.  The students transcribe 30 professionally done labels then reflect on what about the formatting and content makes the info maximally useful (or less so) for research.  Then, they start on their own collections, making their own labels.  To learn more about the Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, check out the recently refreshed wedigbio.org <http://wedigbio.org/> or send the support team an email at wedigbio at gmail.com <mailto:wedigbio at gmail.com>.
