The University of Arizona Invertebrate Collection makes available, to qualified individuals, the facilities and holdings of the collection. Due to recent budget cuts and staff reductions, these facilities are generally open by appointment only from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday and Tuesday, and 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon on Wednesday. Appointments for visits can be made by phone, letter, or e-mail. Because of limited space and staffing, appointments should be made well in advance to avoid potential conflicts. On arrival, visitors are asked to sign a guest book and / or fill out a users form. Proper handling of specimens is expected of visitors.
