New Blog: Cracking the Collections – A group of emerging professionals in the natural history collection field got together at a Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC) meeting a few years ago and decided to start a blog. It is online at: http://crackingthecollections.wordpress.com/. Although, the content includes all natural history collections, not just botany, it is important to spread the word and en- courage “newbies” in the field to connect. Please share with your students! If interested in contributing, please contact the editors.
