The Society of Herbarium Curators is developing a half-day symposium to encourage broader discussion and sharing among the membership about issues related to herbarium management, sustainability, and visibility. We are hopeful that many will participate as presenters and attendees of the symposium.
Please help us plan this symposium and respond to this survey (http://tinyurl.com/shc2016) on or before October 15, 2015.
This symposium will be held as a half-day morning session the Thursday following the close of Botany2016 (August 4, 2016). Botany’s scheduled is packed, leaving this as the best time to ensure availability to all SHC members and non-members interested in herbarium curation and management.
The inspiration for this symposium is based on the extremely successful Entomological Collections Network annual meeting (http://ecnweb.org/) that attracts 200-300 people annually to discuss collections management and related issues.
