Hi, maybe call thisone something like Museum curator, thatway it can be use in the supercategory according to "professions" as well - just a thought ofcourse, Hendricus 19:01, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)

Or Laboratores Museorum could widen it out even more. Is museologus a real word? Harrissimo 19:05, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC).
I take that back (I didn't realise that there was museologia). Harrissimo 19:06, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC).
Well, museoloog (Dutch) = museologicus > museologi- is the profession about the museum itself - how to build presentations and create information about the subjecst according to the wishes and needs of the visitors (even educational purposes); conservator (Dutch) = curator is the profession about working with - and studying the collections, i think the people in the categories about zoologici etc, are certainly the second profession, Hendricus 19:14, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
Yes but this is the wider context and I suppose you could split Museologi into Categoria:Conservatores Museorum and Categoria:Laboratores Museorum if you really liked. Harrissimo 19:23, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC).
Eitherway it's fine with me, (the real museologi aren't mensioned anywere) i think this is up to Andrew, Hendricus 19:27, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
If anyone thinks it's important to distinguish the two professions, that's fine by me. I suspect, at the time we are talking about, no one distinguished them! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:39, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
Well, thats because i've been adding scientists according to the red linked names in the animal species articles, non of them are real museologi their all curators (or conservatori) some of them were directors as well, Hendricus 19:51, 25 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
For the present, I am not going to make the distinction between the two kinds of museum workers. I worked in a similar profession myself (librarian), and I am quite sure that, although your distinction is real in some countries today, it cannot be carried far back into the past or applied with confidence to all cases; also, it is not of interest to most users. I incline to go on calling people who work in museums museologi, because it is simpler than museorum curatores. I'll make one or two national categories of this kind, and we'll see how it goes.
