Geological collections are an irreplaceable part of our scientific and cultural heritage. The Geological Curators’ Group is dedicated to their better care, maintenance and use. The Group aims to:
- improve access to, and knowledge of, such collections for all purposes – from leisure and tourism to education and science.
- improve the status of geology in museums and the standard of geological curation in general by: holding meetings and workshops; providing information and advice; documenting and conserving geological sites; the surveillance of geological collections.
They maintain a database of useful web links for geological curation. These vary from informative websites, through to suppliers of materials which may help you to carry out your job effectively.
