Herbar and Zoorbar are two computer applications designed to manage and digitalize botanical and zoological collections. They are MS Access based software and, by using forms, they allow basic functions of natural history collections such as the design of checklists, the management of scientific names and locations, the production of labels, the elaboration of lists of materials, etc. Moreover, they include other more advanced functionalities such as the management of loans, requests and exchanges, among others.

Nowadays. these two applications have been merged in Elysia, which gathers functionalities from both programs including some upgrades and improvements. Since its launch in May 2016, Herbar and Zoorbar development has been interrupted and, although we are still supporting users, the Spanish Gbif Node recommends to make the migration process as soon as possible.
