HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE ILLUSTRATIONS? by Ari Rehbein, NDSR Resident, Missouri Botanical Garden

Introduction

My project at the Missouri Botanical Garden focuses on access to illustrations in BHL’s corpus of biodiversity literature. I’ve dipped my toes into the related areas of interface design for digital special collections exhibitions, digital humanities, metadata, social media outreach, and rare books in the course of my studies and work. The possibility for engagement and exploration of cultural heritage in the digital environment is infinitely exhilarating.
