What do geologists want from the Royal Cornwall Museum’s geology collections?

Last Updated: 13th Jun 2017

By Roy Starkey

Hi Everyone

Some of you may already be aware via a post on Facebook yesterday (see photo) that an opportunity to participate in a detailed survey is now available online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6RVX5KS (this follows on from an earlier survey - see my article here https://www.mindat.org/article.php/2532/Royal+Cornwall+Museum+-+your+help+required%21)

This latest survey is quite detailed, and addresses many of the issues of potential concern to collectors, visiting researches, professional and amateur geologists and so on.

Comments are invited on such areas as

- Have you ever made a research enquiry to the Royal Cornwall Museum about its geological collections?
- Have you ever provided the museum with your geological expertise?
- What barriers are there to accessing the collection at the moment?
- How would you prefer to access the collection?
- Rate the importance of the following forms of access to the geology collection - Physical access, Free online database, Curatorial expertise
- Which aspects of the museum’s geological collections are of most interest to you?
- In which ways is the museum's geology collection significant?
- What role should the museum play in collecting specimens in the future?
- In which of the following ways would you be willing to help the museum?

There are a total of 25 questions, and plenty of "white space" free-entry fields where you can add additional detail or comment.


Rashleigh Gallery, Royal Cornwall Museum


Please take a look, and invest the ten minutes or so required to complete it and get your voice and opinions heard. This is a great opportunity for the public, and collector community to help influence future direction and policy at the Royal Cornwall Museum - they deserve all the help and support we can give.

Thanks

Roy

Roy, I deleted the first photo you had in the article. It ended up being a link to a nonexistent (Nan) photo. Was messing up the front page of the site.

Thanks David - sorry about that. I don't know what I did wrong, but thanks very much for fixing it.

Cheers
