The “Early Bird Discount” for registration for the upcoming ICMM Conference has been extended until August 31. It appears that the U.S. has two representatives on the program. Stuart Frank, New Bedford Whaling Museum will be speaking at the “Shared HIstory” session and James Delgado, US Maritime Heritage Programme (NOAA) will be part of “Connecting the Past and Present: Maritime Archaeology.”
CAMM President Dave Pearson and Vice-President Greg Gorga will also be attending. We look forward to their report!
Lea Edgar, Librarian & Archivist at Vancouver Maritime Museum, recently queried:
I was wondering if anyone has produced a comprehensive thesaurus or vocabulary for types of vessels? I see a lot of lists out there but none seem to be very official. I am looking for a list that will include broader and narrower terms so that we can include it in a new database we are building. For instance, I want it to include all the different types of fishing vessels. Thanks for your help.
If anyone has created such a guide, please share it with Lea at firstname.lastname@example.org
