Feature Expedition

Museum Catalogue #4A: UWA5994 - UWA7049

Field notesUniversity of Western Australia Edward de Courcy Clarke Earth Science Museum

Each rock, mineral, fossil or meteorite in our collection has all of it's associated information stored in a written catalogue according to a UWA# - an accession number. For >80% of our collection, this is the only record we have for an item's provenance - where it came from, who collected it and what the item is. Digitising this information will allow us to share the contents of our collection online and make it accessible for research, teaching and earth science outreach.
