Large or Complex Loans

Individuals wishing to examine or research large numbers of specimens or unusual requests ('all the ants from a specific region', 'bees from a particular collector') are encouraged to visit the collection.  If this is not possible, such a loan may be split into smaller batches, potentially with only one batch on loan at a time.

The OSAC can accept external funds to hire student curatorial assistants to help expedite large and/or complex loans. If you think this might be of use in your circumstances, please contact the curatorial staff to discuss how this could be arranged.
