The Uses of Electronic Data Processing for Herbarium Specimen Label Information
An introduction is given to the chief elements of computer-based information systems for data on herbarium specimen labels. Some critical reasons for considering using such systems are noted, particularly for providing multi-indexed access to label records. It is concluded that with careful systems analysis, the computer-based approach should be of major value in extending the usefulness of the herbarium.
