The Field Book Project would like to introduce two upcoming blog posts contributed by cataloging interns, Richard Jerome and Alice Doolittle. (Read their bios here).
Richard Jerome has been cataloging field books at the Smithsonian Institution Archives and the National Museum of Natural History Division of Birds. Richard’s blog post, New Animals in New Places, looks at the issue of invasive species, and highlights an interesting anecdote found in the field book of Alexander Wetmore. Richard’s post will go up tomorrow, July 20th.
Alice Doolittle has continued cataloging the large collection of POBSP (Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program) materials at the Smithsonian Institution Archives. She has also started cataloging field books in the National Museum of Natural History Division of Fishes. You can look for a blog post by Alice in early August.
We’d like to thank our interns for all of their hard work. Stay tuned to get a glimpse into what they’ve been up to this summer!
