I should clarify the message below.  After I left, Jeff Barnes was the
Collection Manager (hired while I was there), and Ashley Dowling took my
faculty spot. Jeff I think retired in 2016, so I don't know who is
collection manager now or whether there's a permanent commitment to one.

>> at
>> U.S. universities
>>
>> Hi everyone,
>>
>> This question is mostly directed toward directors/curators of
>> entomological collections at U.S. universities.
>>
>> If your collection has a permanent position assigned to it (e.g.
>> collections manager, curatorial assistant, technician, undergraduate,
>> GRA—i.e. other than than the director/curator), how do you pay for
>> this
>> position? Is it through extension, soft money, department/college,
>> university?
>>
>> The Virginia Tech Insect Collection (VTEC,
>> collection.ento.vt.edu<http://collection.ento.vt.edu>) received a NSF
>> CSBR
>> in 2015 that reinvigorated the collection after ~20 years, spurring
>> digitization, staff/student hires, infrastructure improvements, and
>> consequently an increase in loans, data inquiries, research, and usage
>> of
>> the material. The CSBR award is ending this year, and I want to keep the
>> momentum of the natural history collection going. I am therefore in the
>> process of finding support for the VTEC. We have received some private
>> donations, which are great, but they're sporadic and have only started
>> to
>> replenish a small gift account. The collection, after the NSF award
>> ends,
>> would then be only supported by a department-supported phone line and a
>> faculty position (me as curator, but with a 0% appointment to work in
>> the
>> collection).
>>
>> I recently requested a permanent position for the VTEC from our college
>> dean and department head. They were generally receptive about the idea,
>> but wanted to hear how other universities pay for these positions.
>>
>> Thank you for any information or advice you have.
