We have launched an exciting new monthly series on the Geological Curators' Group blog called News from the Sector; we wanted a title that, in the great sea of social media, would tell someone at a glance what they should expect. Each month, this series will feature the latest geological and palaeontological news, jobs, exhibitions, and conferences that might tickle your fancy, if you are of the Earth Science appreciating persuasion.

If you or your institution has anything they would like to add to, or advertise, please get in touch with Blog Editor Emma Nicholls, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. News from the Sector will be published around the 15th of each month, with the deadline for submissions being the 1st of the same month.
