When we disseminate information, we routinely use the herbarium listserv:
Initiated in 2008, the US Virtual Herbarium project's purpose is to facilitate the digitization and
online presentation of herbarium specimens and their associated information. It operates at three
different levels: helping people in individual herbaria to make their specimens web-accessible;
promoting formation of regional portals; and, ultimately, by enabling access to all herbarium
records via a single portal. Individual portals may be designed to draw on a subset of the records,
but all records would be available to all portals.
