Mission and Vision


To make the CSULB curated collections data and specimens available to researchers and educators in the biological sciences.


Our collections are a storehouse of information and are most valuable when they are shared among researchers and educators in the greater biological sciences community. Over the next few years, we intend to improve the significance of our collections by bringing them up to modern curatorial standards and increasing their accessibility and visibility to the global community by providing digital access to data; and by continuing to acquire new, high quality specimens for both education and research.
