dc.description.abstractAlberta's natural science collections face fundamental challenges that are part of much larger issues beyond museums and collections. University collections can thrive in the midst of these challenges by focusing on a simple theme: unlocking the legacy of our collections. This paper describes our dreams, our strategies and our progress in unlocking that legacy by building a distributed computer network that provides access to information about natural science collections objects in the province of Alberta. Knowledge summaries that act as intellectual roadmaps enhance access to basic specimen databases. A vital community of collections users energizes the network. Our aim is to build a virtual facility, for all public natural science collections in Alberta, that nurtures a dynamic, sustainable and mutually supportive balance among objects, ideas and people at multiple levels.eng
