Brooklyn Botanic Garden Awarded IMLS Grant
18 September 2013
Brooklyn Botanic Garden has been awarded a three-year, $150,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in support of its living collection management program. With these funds, BBG will be able to inventory and retag the Garden’s living collections and create a more robust and accurate data profile for each plant. The project will also connect the living collections system with a plant image database and public web interface. The integrity, depth, and ease by which information can be found will be vastly improved, paving the way for broader digital and physical access to the Garden’s collections.
