Caring for Collections

Who does it?

Everyone associated with the specimens and the space they are used in. That means:

  • staff directly associated with each collection--the curator, the collection managers, collection assistants
  • volunteers
  • library staff
  • education department staff
  • exhibits staff
  • conservators
  • even administrators (who provide the financial resources to make it all happen!)
