exhibit collection
museum specimens on display in a public exhibit. The specimens may be designated specifically for the exhibit and thus may be discarded when the exhibit is closed, or stored separately from the main collection. Specimens from the main or permanent collections may be used in exhibits but do not from part of an exhibit collection
