Beyond of the exhibitions...
By means of the digitalization and putting in line of our collections through the electronic network, one takes to an important step towards the improvement and extension of our services; in addition, the search of the knowledge on the part of the public in general is promoted and the mission is fortified that the museum in the society fulfills.

With this aim it is that one has worked intensely in the technical consolidation of the data bases, in which information of our cultural and natural patrimony is compiled.

First between the data bases in being placed in the electronic network it was the collection of the National Herbario of Costa Rica, in the site of Global Biodiversity Information (GBIF), organization that partially financed the registry of information in our data base.
