Between 2010 and 2015, Naturalis Biodiversity Center executed one of the largest projects for natural history collection digitization to date. At least 37 million objects were digitized, including 7 million objects on a high level detail. Nowaday 42 million objects are digitized, including 9 million objects on a high level detail.

Naturalis has acquired digitization expertise while running this current large-scale digitization project. This expertise and the capacity of our digitization team can be of use to other institutions as well. Naturalis welcomes initiatives for cooperative digitization efforts.
