Each week throughout the quarter we will focus on a specific area of museum curation, such as the importance of collections, documentation, methods of preservation, taxonomic nomenclature and labeling, and cataloging specimens. Students will have the opportunity to prepare and process a variety of specimens using several different methods of preservation. Students who complete this introductory internship will be eligible for additional intern positions in vertebrate collection management at CCBER during subsequent quarters.
The class is held weekly from 2:00-5:00 pm unless otherwise noted with an
asterisk. On those dates, students will travel by UCSB van to other
museums for the class lesson. Please allow 3 hours plus travel time of 1
hour each way (approximately 1:30-6:30 pm).
To participate, students must attend the first class orientation and may
not add the class after Sept. 28.
