An NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (DEB 0956129), the goal of AIM-UP! is to bring museum archives and natural history collections to the forefront of biology education. 

From the website:

We are developing these themes through meetings, on-line discussions and workshops at scientific meetings including an exploration of the use of natural history collections and associated databases to facilitate teaching in other subdisciplines in biology (e.g., developmental biology, behavior, physiology, and cellular biology) and in other fields (e.g., geography, art).
