Cataloguing Natural Science objects

Postby Anne » Thu Oct 27, 2011 10:18 am

As a newbie, I have become familiar with the fields used for cataloguing History objects. I have benefitted from Paul's worksheet and another museum's handbook kindly shared (thank you, Kaaren). A great start. Then I had to catalogue a Natural Science object and was stunned at the many fields where I cannot work out what to put. Some of this is partly due to the great humanities/natural science divide. In one sense the fields are straight forward and one has at first to become familiar with them. Nevertheless, some require specific type of information. Does anyone have a guide, examples or handbook they are willing to share ways they have mastered this object catalogue type?
