Curation is the identification, care and preservation of specimens within the collection. It also involves active use and expansion of the collection.
Management of the collection entails both classic curation of specimens as well as use of the modern digital world.
We use digital aids in all areas: cataloguing, inventorying, accessioning new specimens, tracking loans, locating specimens in the repository, imaging specimens, and making the collection accessible to others. Computers are critical and a well-supported network is essential.
