As part of the digitisation of the collections held at RBGE we are starting to barcode our microscope slide collections. As part of this we have been investigating the placement of barcode labels on some of the more difficult slides.



As part of this we have created a short survey in which we have given some examples of microscope slides of diatoms and fungi. The survey is available here: if you would like to assist us with this project. It will be available until the 14th August.

We will then collate the information we receive and make it available to the community.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Robyn Drinkwater (, who is leading this project.

Many thanks for all help received with this.
