On July 7, 2016, SECOSUD II project started the digital archiving of the biological collections of the Natural History Museum of Mozambique (MHN), in collaboration with MHN staff. Such collections include mammals, fish, insects, birds and invertebrates.
The computerization of the biological collections of MHN is based on the use of the Specify as database program, which is installed on a network server and in principle runs on three computers. Specify is a database platform dedicated to cataloging and managing zoological and botanical collections.
