Title: Introduction to Arctos for Teaching Collections
Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2020
Time: 3pm ET
Presenter: Anna Chinn (Assistant Collections Manager, Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum)
Abstract: While museum teaching collections are often maintained informally or as ad hoc resources, in Arctos, teaching collections use the same shared formal infrastructure more typical to scientific collection management. This webinar will highlight tools that integrate teaching and research collection management systems and that streamline day-to-day management activities, including loans, taxonomy, and built-in label generation. The webinar will also cover resources that make objects and specimens more accessible to non-academic users, like museum educators, including search tools, images and media, and the Arctos projects module.
