Title: The Scientific Strategy of Conserving and Researching Existing Anthropological Museum Collections
Lead Author: Lyons, Patrick D
Abstract: Systematic anthropological collections are valuable and nonrenewable resources that allow ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research on multiple geographical and temporal scales. For the research potential of these collections to be realized, they must be preserved and conserved. NSF should provide support for the care of systematic anthropological collections (as it did in the past, and as it currently does in the Directorate for Biological Sciences), create a special program to fund collections-based research, and foster the use of collections (and archaeological collections, specifically) in science education. Current NSF policies that run counter to preserving the research potential of collections should be discontinued.
