Information for visiting researchers
UCMP collections and facilities are available for use by qualified researchers. Loans of specimens are available to qualified researchers, and exhibit loans are available for non-commerical and educational purposes.
Collection records (accession, specimen, and locality records) are available for use and should comprise an important part of any publication involving the citation of UCMP materials. However, these data should not be released prior to publication without approval by Museum staff.
Visitors to UCMP are expected to handle specimens properly and comply with collections management policy governing collections and lab use. Proper use insures that UCMP collections will be available for future generations. Violations of these rules will result in loss of access to UCMP collections and facilities.
