Museum-Voices-logoMuseums are exciting, dynamic places. There are curators conducting cutting-edge research, collection managers carefully cataloging specimens, educators inspiring the next generation of scientists, exhibit designers crafting immersive experiences for visitors, and other activities occurring every day that many people don’t associate with museums.

Museum Voices is an opportunity for staff and graduate students to share their experiences with the world. The blogs may be run by individuals or entire labs or departments. Each has a unique perspective, and combined, the voices weave a colorful picture of museum life and discovery. Come see what we’re up to and join the conversation!

Icacinaceae at Blue Rim

From: Blue Rim Paleobotany

The Icacinaceae* are found in tropical forests in Asia and Africa today.

Postdoctoral fellow in Computable Semantics for the Tree of Life

From: The Cellinese Lab

The Phyloreferencing project seeks a postdoctoral fellow for researching and developing computational semantics approaches to large-scale biodiversity data integration problems. The project aims to enable addressing elements in the Tree of Life by unambiguous, transparent, and fully computable semantics of their patterns of evolutionary descent. The work involves researching and developing OWL models and ontologies, […]

Google is your homepage

From: Webology

In 2014, the homepage received only 2.39% of the total page views on the Museum’s website. I knew that our homepage has never been the most-visited page on our site (snakes and shark attacks are always battling for that honor), but until now I didn’t give much thought to the actual percentage of visitors who view it compared to […]
