Specify is a research software application, database, and network interface for biological collections information. It manages specimen data such as descriptions of collecting locations, participants and determination histories as well as information about collections transactions such as loans, exchanges, accessions and gifts. Version 6 includes a much more user friendly interface. It supports multiple user connections to MySQL or a local connection to it's own internal database system. The reporting tools are also very flexible and well represented.
