NMS Knowledge Exchange: An introduction to bird and egg collections
Wednesday, February 8, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 4:45 PM (GMT)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Do you have bird specimens or bird eggs in your museum? Would you like to discuss these collections with a specialist? Would you like a basic introduction to curation and management of bird and egg collections?
This workshop will aim to develop participants’ confidence in working with bird and egg collections. The day will focus on discussion of typical bird specimens and bird eggs likely to be found in Scottish collections, and explore the issues museums face day-to day with regards to curation and management of these.
The day will concentrate on offering practical advice, sharing National Museums Scotland's experience through examples and provide information on sources for further advice.

Who is this programme for?
Participants can be from any type of collecting organisation, however the course is aimed primarily at museum and gallery professionals in Scotland. Our aim is to support the development of curatorial confidence across Scotland and ensure good dialogue between the National Museums and the wider sector.
These events are provided free of charge. Participants will be required to meet their own travel and subsistence costs.
Places on these courses are limited. Filling in this form will register your interest in the course and we will be in touch at a later date to confirm your place.
When & Where
National Museums Scotland
Partnerships both home and abroad ensure our collections reach as many people as possible.
National Museums Scotland's current partnership activity is extensive. Through touring exhibitions, loans, support and dedicated activity programmes, we are able to introduce our collections to a much wider audience than can walk through the doors of our museums. Our partnerships also help boost skills, enabling us to share knowledge and experience across the museums community.
