No Bones is a blog that reports the comings, goings, thoughts, and achievements of those individuals who make up the community of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Posts on this blog come from the broad diversity of individuals who make up this dynamic community.
The mission of “No Bones” is:
- To provide a more personal, public face for both the research and collections of the Invertebrate Zoology department at NMNH,
- To foster networking and communication among NMNH Invertebrate Zoology researchers and the marine biology and invertebrate zoology research community at large,
- To supplement internal communications within the Invertebrate Zoology department, in the form of accounts of scholarly activities, visitors, and researcher interest profiles, and
- To supplement other Smithsonian outreach efforts (OceanPortal, Smithsonian Science, press releases, etc.).
The target audience of “No Bones” was identified based on the Mission, stated above.
- Invertebrate enthusiasts, including students from high school through college and other professional researchers
- The internal community of the IZ department
- Other members of the broader NMNH and Smithsonian communities
