Cataloging: the art of keeping track

Combining a multitude of guest researchers and our own efforts at working through the material, we’re producing thousands of new records to be cataloged into our database (we’ll get those listed here eventually, work is still ongoing at the moment).

Cataloging samples also means that the material needs to be physically updated;
New labels are printed for the samples,  and these must then be matched to their respective jars, inserted, and stored safely. It may sound pretty straight forward, but with this many samples, it is still a time consuming job.
