Historical Note:
The Association of Systematics Collections (ASC) is an international, non-profit organization of institutions that maintain biological collections. It was established on July 7, 1972 ... "To foster the care, management, preservation, and improvement of systematics collections and to facilitate their utilization in science and society." The ASC is responsible for coordinating development and implementation of plans to improve the condition and availability of biological collections. It fulfills its mission by providing representation for institutions housing systematics collections, encouraging interaction among those concerned with systematics collections and their use, and providing a forum for consideration of mutual problems. The ASC publishes a bimonthly ASC Newsletter and booklets on a variety of topical issues. It is governed by a Board of Directors and a permanent Secretariat.
