dc.description.abstractOne of the greatest challenges for university museums is to convince the public, the government, and private donors of the value of scientific collections. Too many visitors experience museum collections as simply vast quantities of nearly identical bird skins, mammal bones, pressed plants, without understanding why they are there and what larger function they serve. To communicate the importance of collections requires an ability to connect museum research with the interests of the public, government or donors, something which at times requires considerable imagination.eng
dc.description.abstractUm dos maiores desafios que os museus universitârios enfrentam consiste em convencer o publico, as autòridades oficiais e govemamentais e os mecenas privados do valor cientifico das suas colecçôes. Muitas vezes, a percepçâo destes enquanto visitantes resume-se a vastas quantidades de espécimens quase idênticos, cuja importância e razâo de existência lhes escapa frequentemente. Sensibilizar para 0 valor cientifico destas colecçôes requer uma capacidade em estabelecer pontes directas entre a investigaçâo por um lado, e os interesses do publico, do governo ou dos mecenas por outro. Algo que, muitas vezes, tem de ser feito com considerâveis doses de imaginaçào.por
