Conference on partnerships for government collections

From: Paisley S. Cato <cato>
Date: Wednesday, September 16, 1998
Second Conference on Partnership Opportunities for
Federally-Associated Collections
November 18-20, 1998
San Diego, California

Cosponsored by the U.S. Department of the Interior, the San Diego
Natural History Museum and the San Diego Archeological Center.

Millions of objects, specimens, documents and other records are
managed in the public trust of the United States. These come from
Federal lands and sites, agencies, and programs. Federal and
non-Federal institutions often share the responsibility for care of
and access to these collections. In 1996, the U.S. Department of the
Interior and the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the
University of California, Berkeley, sponsored the first conference
designed to explore the issues surrounding Federal and non-Federal
partnerships to manage such collections.  This conference, November
18-20, 1998 in San Diego, California will build on the results of
the 1996 meeting with the intention of providing practical
strategies for fostering practical and useful partnerships among
Federal, tribal, institutional and amateur interests.

There will be two days of pre-conference activities, followed by
three days of formal presentation sessions.  Interested parties
