The digitization results are published in the open access as 6 datasets on the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) portal using the Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) installed on the CSBG server. Digitization is performed on two ObjectScan 1600 scanners (Microtek) using soft ware ScanWizard-Botany and MiVapp-Botany according to the international standards, at 600 dpi, with a barcode, 24-color scale and spatial scale bar.
