ABSTRACT
This paper describes a project to digitize and openly share the natural history collections (AMUNATCOLL), implemented at the Faculty of Biology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland). The result of this project is a database (2,2 million records) of plant, fungal and animal specimens, available online on the AMUNATCOLL portal and on the Global Biodiversity Information Facility website. This article presents selected aspects of the "life cycle" of such a project, paying particular attention to its preparatory phase.
