We welcome new archaeological collections for curation.

The Laboratory adheres to high ethical and professional responsibilities for collections placed within our facilities and takes great care in the conservation of archaeological artifact collections, as well as associated paper and digital records. The Laboratory meets Federal standards (36CFR79 and Antiquities Act of 1906) for archaeological curation and is compliant with all state and federal laws.

Maintaining the archaeology collections in our facility is the main priority of the Director and Operations Director. Materials are maintained in a temperature, humidity and light monitored environment. All material is integrated into our barcode and database system (UGACMS) to record information and keep track of the specific location of boxes.  

Please see our Collections Management Policy for more information on standards of curation within the Laboratory.
