Second Conference on Partnership Opportunities for Federally-Associated Collections
The U. S. Department of the Interior,
November 18-20, 1998
San Diego, California
Millions of objects, specimens, documents and other records are managed in the public trust of the United States. Generated from Federal lands, sites, agencies and programs, Federal and non-Federal institutions often share responsibility for the care of and access to these collections. In 1996, the U.S. Department of the Interior and the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology (University of California, Berkeley) co-sponsored the first conference on partnership opportunities for managing Federally-associated collections. Building on that success, this 1998 conference will focus on strategic planning to initiate a continuing series of actions to increase understanding and support of our federally-associated collections.
Our goal is to develop, share and prioritize strategies for fostering practical and useful partnerships among Federal, tribal, institutional, and other stakeholders to improve access to and care of Federally-associated collections.
