The Australian Museum Archives holds more than 150 years of records of the Museum, its people, buildings, science, exhibitions and events. In this blog we want to share some of the things we enjoy about our collections, tell some Museum stories and give you an insight into the work we do every day.
What did I conclude from the Co-curation and the Public History of Science Workshop at the Science Museum, London? Well, organisational change is hard, so I'll share some of my learning that relates to the new ways of working given the online world. It's relevant to co-curation as the way the web is now demands new ways of engagement from and with our audiences.
Attending this workshop at the Science Museum, London. The aim is to create dialogue and debate and learn from each others' experience of co-curation as the Science Musuem moves into the next phase of gallery redevelopment.
Here are my quick notes. There is also more on the workshop wiki: http://ccphworkshop.pbworks.com/w/page/CCHPWorkshopWiki
This week we feature some lovely images of flying fishes in flight ... or should I say glide? There are images of a larval surgeonfish, a gudgeon in freshwater and a selection of fishes caught on hook and line. Thank you as always to all our contributors.
Life at Lizard Island Research Station is never dull. Fabulous coral reef environment, exciting discoveries, interesting visitors, amazing natural events! This post includes giant clam spawning, just to get you started.
This week we feature an incredible piece of research on deepsea fishes that have flexible 'necks' that lack vertebrae. Bizarre! Four new movies were loaded, a bunch of images added, and a new image gallery for triggerfishes was compiled.
