The project of the Botany Digital
, aims to construct and make available free on the web, the resources
available in the Library of the Botany Department of the Faculty of Science and
Technology of the University
of Coimbra. These include antique books, manuscript books
and botany displays made up of handwritten correspondence, photographs,
drawings etc. The aim is to start the interaction between the various resources
in the various databases: the Digital Library and the On-line Herbarium.
The Digital Library of the Department of
Botany has its genesis in the project of the Botany Digital Library, a
project to digitalize and promote. An application was made to the Programa
Operacional da Sociedade do Conhecimento, promoted by the Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior. It was accepted and
this guaranteed the financial resources to achieve it.
