The Data Bank of the British Antarctic Survey’s Botanical Section
A description will be given of the use of a coded computer file and an in-clear card index to retrieve data from a medium-sized, special-purpose herbarium. The computer program uses a fixed-field format for selected collecting data, state of specimen information and herbaria holding duplicates. It is possible to sort on all fields and therefore the file can be used for different purposes. The card index contains the full information on every specimen on the computer file and provides an instantly available reference source.
