BRUNTON C. H. C.; BESTERMAN T.P. ; COOPER J. A. 1984 Guidelines for the Curation of Geological Materials Geological Curators Group, Geological Society Miscellaneous Paper No. 17 London


The Geological Curators Group, which is affiliated to the Geological Society, was founded in May 1974 by geologists concerned about the poor standard of geological curation and consequent plight of geological collections in many of the museums in Britain. The situation was documented and reported upon by Doughty (1981), who illuminated the extent of the problem and provided impetus towards achieving one of the Group's initial aims - the improvement of geological curatorial standards by the 'preparation of a code of practice for curation and development of collections'. While the need for such a code has been recognised for several years, it has been difficult for the Group, with widely scattered members and no permanent address, to start gathering the necessary scripts. However, when I became Chairman of the Group, I saw this objective as a priority in which the Group could make a significant contribution, and that the time was opportune to push ahead with 'Guidelines for the Curation of Geological Materials'. What follows is an imperfect first edition; it should be read as such and constructive comments are welcome.
