The most recent issue of ZooKeys (209) is entirely dedicated to the digitisation of natural history collections around the world. The catchy title, “No specimen left behind: mass digitization of natural history collections” describes the focus of this special issue. Many of the articles are authored by ALA partners including Paul Flemons and Penny Berents from the Australian Museum; Beth Mantle and Nicole Fisher from CSIRO; and ALA Director John La Salle.

All the papers are open access and freely available to download. So what are you waiting for? Grab a coffee and delve into this fascinating issue.
