Introduction to IrisBG: Advanced Collection Management Made Easy

“The significance of a [plant] in the collection lies not in itself alone but also in the information relating to it.” Carl E. Guthe.

A seemingly never-ending challenge for many botanic gardens today is to have sufficient time to record accurate information about their plant collection. IrisBG has been designed to tackle this challenge head-on by making it easy to record and keep track of your botanical collection. In addition, the flexibility, ease of use and power of IrisBG makes it a perfect fit for large academic institutions as well as smaller gardens. In the presentation, we will introduce you to the basic workings of IrisBG and show you how to carry out tasks such as accessioning, mapping of plants, managing nomenclature, printing plant labels, sharing your plant collection with visitors. In the final part of the workshop, we will focus on how seemingly complex tasks are managed with great ease in IrisBG.

Join our presentation to learn how easy it can be to capture accurate plant collection information and how this data can become more accessible and valuable to your institution.

When : Tuesday June, 27th – 11:00 to 12:30
