Digitization

Digitization is the recent vital work carrying out by the NHPL. We have digitized images more than 20000 specimens. This is a pioneer work in South Asia. After completion of the work, botanists or researchers may have opportunity to access our specimens from any part of the world. Besides, it will help for long term preservation of the specimens as it  protects the valuable information on herbarium sheets that may be lost in the event of natural disasters (earthquakes, fire etc) and physical destruction during specimen sheet handling as well.
