Libraries of Life is a growing collaborative platform featuring natural history collections and specimens from diverse institutions and museums from across the U.S. The prototype was developed via a collaboration with iDigBio, the U.S. National Science Foundation's National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections where a growing number of Thematic Collections Networks focused on creating digital, web-deployed information about the nation's billion biodiversity specimens to benefit science and society. Arizona State University's Anne Basham (ExplorMor Labs/BioKIC, Biodiversity Knowledge Integration Center) and Florida State University's Austin Mast (Department of Biological Science and iDigBio) led development. This project aims to develop a learning tool that will promote engagement with biodiversity specimens and their data through a set of augmented reality collection cards. You can obtain a full set of cards from featured sponsors to engage with the app or go to www.libraries-of-life.org and download a free PDF for use in your educational program or classroom.
