Assessing the reach and impact of natural history collections requires reviewing scientific literature for citations to specimens, which can be labor-intensive. This project curates and analyzes a bibliography of literature citing specimens from the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology. We demonstrate a machine learning approach we are developing to detect specimen citations in scientific literature with the goal of enabling comprehensive studies of specimen reuse patterns across multiple natural history collections.
