Policies and Procedures
The UTEP-BC attempts to make free access to the collections for professional and student research. Selected portions of the collections are used for education. However, in line with our obligation to maintain a high standard of preservation of the collections and their accompanying data for the use of current and future researchers, a number of necessary rules and procedures have been put in place.
The issues addressed in this document are primarily for individuals, such as visiting researchers, involved in temporary, short-time association with the collections and persons utilizing laboratory space but not the collections per se. Persons utilizing the collections in a non-temporary manner must become familiar with, and sign off on, the UTEP Biodiversity Collections Policies and Procedures document in its entirety.
