UWZM Resources for Research

Accessing the Collection

To request use of specimens, contact the Museum Registrar.  At least two weeks advanced notice is required.


Off-campus loans may be arranged for research study. Requests for loans should be submitted at least two weeks in advance and must state clearly the need and the proposed use of the specimens. The UWZM can also facilitate incoming loans to and from other institutions.  Requests for destructive analysis will be evaluated by a Museum Committee.
