Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of materials concerning Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC) annual meetings, educational programs, publications, finances, elections, and committees. SPNHC affiliated people documented in the collection include Suzanne MacLaren, Judith Price, Lisa Palmer, Linda Hollenberg, Carolyn L. Rose, and Paisley S. Cato. Particularly well documented is the SPNHC publication, Storage of Natural History Collections: Ideas and Practical Solutions, 1992, which was funded by a grant from the Institute for Museum Services. Also included is the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Newsletter which is printed bi-annually in March and September. The Newsletter highlights scientific collections, the society's presidential and committees' reports, publications of interests and more. In 2014, the Newsletter became the SPNHC Connection. Also, a part of the collection is the Collection Forum, the official journal of SPNHC, that is published to disseminate substantive information concerning the development and preservation of natural history collections.

Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, newsletters and other serial publications, annual meeting records, workshop records, membership lists, committee records, reports, budget records, images, drawings, grant records, author releases, leadership manuals, financial records, and other related materials documenting SPNHC activities. Some materials are in electronic format.
