Staff working in Herbarium

We are fortunate to have many dedicated volunteers who help us with specimen curation and digitisation. When we have opportunities to join our in-person volunteer team, we will advertise them on this webpage and on the University of Cambridge Museums Volunteermakers website.

Join our virtual volunteer team by contributing to online transcription projects on Zooniverse

Visit Digitising the Cambridge University Herbarium at to participate in our online transcription projects, which allow us to gather data about our collections and make them more accessible to researchers around the world.

We will release additional transcription projects as we work to digitise our collections, so check back in regularly to see more of our collections and learn about how you can support our digitisation work.
