The Southwest Collections or Arthropods Network (SCAN) is a collaborative project to make arthropod collections from ten Southwestern institutions accessible online. It is led by Neil Cobb from Northern Arizona University and involves Frank Krell, Paula Cushing, and Jeff Stephenson from DMNS. The funding from the National Science Foundation (EF-1207186) will enable us to purchase high end photo equipment for digitizing small, pinned specimens, and employ a databasing assistant for two years. The project will bring collections data and photographs of soil-living arthropods online and will help scientists and the public alike to identify and find information about these ecologically important, but lesser known animals.
