Working with specialist conservation records on a custom database

Plant Heritage is a small independent charity based in Surrey that operates throughout the UK and Ireland with the support of a large network of volunteers and supporters.  It records, researches, and preserves garden plants through the National Plant Collection Scheme and uses a custom web-interface database (Persephone) for managing its new collection records. Plant Heritage recruited digital volunteers to transfer older records — a mixture of formats from paper to Word and Excel documents — onto the Persephone database to ensure all their plant data is securely stored and improve their curatorial standards.
