Burke Imaging Research and Demonstration Equipment (BIRDE)
Burke Museum of Natural History
Documentation of research and community outreach are essential elements of biological research, especially at the the organismal level. The Burke Museum of Natural History is a hub for zoology research on campus, serving undergraduates, graduate students, professors, and visiting researchers. In order to better serve research and outreach efforts, this grants seeks to provide overhead cameras and computer workstations for operation at the microscopic and macro scale. Four small document cameras with digital zoom will provide detailed viewing and image capture. A large-scale overhead mounted camera will serve the biology prep lab dissection area. In addition, high-definition monitors will provide both researchers and museum visitors with detailed views of the specimens being prepared and studied. A new, fully standardized lighting array and digital white-light scanner station are also included.
