The conference time is fast approaching so get on "The Road to
Productive Partnerships" and join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for
the Joint Annual Meeting of the Society for the Preservation of
Natural History Collections (SPNHC) and the Natural Science
Collections Alliance (NSCA), 23-27 May 2006
<URL:http://www.msb.unm.edu/meetings/SPNHC-NSCA2006/>.

For those who haven't yet registered for the conference, there is
still time to do so but don't delay.  There are a few openings for
the pre-conference field trips and the Thursday evening banquet. And
for those who have signed up for field trips, you will be contacted
soon by the trip organizers with additional information about
meeting times and places.

Accommodations: the SPNHC-NSCA block of reserved rooms at the
headquarters hotel, the Hotel Albuquerque, has been filled. We
recommend the Best Western Rio Grande Inn Albuquerque, only 0.2
miles away, or one of the other hotel options listed at

    <URL:http://www.msb.unm.edu/
        meetings/SPNHC-NSCA2006/hotel.html>

Not listed but another option is the Econo Lodge Old Town (2321
Central Avenue NW; 505-243-8475). It's less than a 10 minute walk to
the headquarters hotel and reasonably priced with good-sized rooms
(thanks A. Pinzl).

Workshops: The morning workshops on Data quality and data cleaning
(workshop #1) and the Ins and outs of imaging for museum collections
(workshop #2) have been filled but there are a few seats left in the
afternoon sessions as well as in the morning workshop on Arctos: a
biodiversity informatics tool. The all-day workshop on Becoming a
GBIF provider has been cancelled (workshop #4).

For those making presentations (talks or posters) please see
