Keywords:mineralogy, minerals, museum management, mineralogical museums, collections
This report has been prepared for the purpose of establishing a framework within which the Nova Scotia Mineralogy Collection can be curated in the future. All aspects of curation are discussed, along with a brief history and plan for future development. A section is also given over to a list of minerals which are represented in the collection. This report will increase the collection's worth to the museum, the professional community and the public at large.
