A light lunch will be served from 12:00-12:30 followed by the talk at 12:30.
Museums and libraries increasingly rely on one another’s strengths to preserve unique, distinctive heritage and biodiversity collections for future generations. Val Minson, Marston Science Library chair, will present on the pioneering work of UF scientists and the Libraries’ support for continuing preservation and access to the collections created by Florida Museum of Natural History scientists. Minson will speak about the Elizabeth Wing Collection featured in the Smathers Library exhibition, “Visualizing the Natural World,” co-curated by Minson. The Elizabeth S. Wing Papers represent the life’s work of the “mother of environmental archaeology” in North America. Minson also will discuss the Charles “Chas” Doe Collection, created by the Museum’s first curator of Ornithology. Come learn about these and other collaborations between the George A. Smathers Libraries and the Florida Museum.
