We've been imaging and databasing our tardigrade collection for the past couple of years under an NSF grant. We scan the slides as in the image below and then the bar code goes on the back of the slide behind the label in the left. Our tardigrade portal is at http://symbiota4.acis.ufl.edu/tardigrade/portal/index.php

Subject: Slide (Collection Data) barcode placement & imaging protocols
We're thinking about starting a pilot program to develop workflows for digitizing our slide collections. So, 2 questions:
The main reason for this email:
1) How do you affix barcodes to your slides, and where do you place them? It seems that with a lot of slides, there are labels on both sides of the specimen on the slide (left and right side), so there isn't much space on the slide. Any suggestions?
Added bonus question:
2) Does anyone have protocols or workflows that they would be willing to share? We're particularly interested if you use a keEMu database.
