Before I came to the BC Provincial Museum (now the Royal BC Museum - Index
Herbariorum abbrev. V), I kept two or three cabinets of our (Oluna & Adolf
Ceska) herbarium collections in their V herbarium hall. Later I was told
that the Museum rule was that the museum curators are not allowed to keep
their own, personal collections. I wonder, was this rule specific to the V
I did not know about that rule and I was glad to donate our collections to
V, something I had been doing even before I learned about such a rule.
I wonder, do you have a similar rule in your institution, or is it a result
of a traditional fight between the curators and the museum director?
Please, don't reply to all! Reply only to me and I will compile the answers.
All the best,
