dc.description.abstractPreserving collections for future generations does not exclude finding new and modern uses for collections, thus combining ‘old’ materials with new ideas and modern technologies. In this article, I demonstrate how we use our collection specimens for knowledge communication while not only conveying scientific information, but also the historic and cultural significance of specimens; how they are used not only for classes and exhibitions, but for workshops where students determine group characters and find evolutionary processes, and for bachelor dissertations in science communication. We are developing workshops to be accessed by students through the internet while studying the actual specimens. We organize workshops on the use of the senses and the strength of the scientific method. Behind the scenes, we are conversing with others to form one university museum with a collective mission statement and an original niche within the museum community that corresponds with expectations of the public.eng
