Long-time No See – Updates from the natural science collections community

Two years without seeing our museum friends and colleagues has been hard, but we know that our industrious community has learnt much over this time. In this session we are keen to help members reconnect with each other, sharing stories about what you have been getting up to. We want to highlight your projects, plans, discoveries, and diversions relating to collections, conservation, curation, engagement, and practice. This is an opportunity to re-establish networks and share your experiences.
This 90-minute session will comprise a series of 5-minute lightning talks with opportunities for questions and discussion.

If you have something you'd like to share during the session, please submit an abstract for your 5-minute talk via the SPNHC 2022 website by January 28th:
