The Collections Repository (6,500 sq. ft.) serves as a repository in Riverside County for paleontological and archaeological collections derived from cultural and natural resource management projects as well as individual research projects that focus on Riverside County locations. The collections are housed in a state-of-the-art system: mobile compactor carriages holding 14′ high steel shelving equipped with seismic restraints and steel cabinets with aluminum drawers. Pallet racking houses larger, jacketed specimens. Managed by a team of collections management professionals, policies and procedures exceed the standards established by relevant museum and discipline-based professional societies.
