Are you considering improving collections management, working in partnership, uniting collections into one centre or improving access to scientific instruments? This seminar will consider the documentation, care and use of historic science collections, focusing on several issues raised during a recent University of Aberdeen project and exploring how these issues have been addressed by other institutions.

The seminar will begin with a visit to the scientific instrument collection store at 2:30pm on Monday 23 June, with a full day of discussions, talks and site visits on Tuesday 24th June. A range of speakers will talk about their experiences with science collections in relation to management, partnership, uniting collections and engaging the public and researchers, and there will be a focus on scientific instruments. There will also be two group discussions: one about the idea of deep storage and the other on using instruments for demonstrations/ teaching.
