cardiShorts episode 9 – Rolf Schmidt

In this episode Rolf Schmidt, Collection Manager, Invertebrate Palaeontology at Museums Victoria, talks about working from home, catching up on legacy cataloguing in EMu transferring data from paper accession registers into the electronic collection management system, working on publishing information from Rolf’s PhD in scientific journals, and selecting a fossil for Victoria (voting details later)! Rolf’s cute fluffy cat also makes an appearance! Thank you for sharing your WFH experience with us Rolf. I’m sure many of us can relate to the overwhelmed feeling of uncertainty during these difficult times in isolation. Stay safe and well everyone.

Please note that as the video was taken indoors in large open spaces and outside the RAAF Museum building, the ambient sounds occasionally overlap Imogen’s presentation.

We were planning a cardiParty with Imogen before lockdown which we sadly had to cancel. Thanks for sharing this cardiShort Imogen, it’s a wonderful substitute for a cardiParty but I hope we can organise an event at RAAF Museum sometime in the future!
