Collection Policies and Loans
The Archaeology Department welcomes appropriate use of all the collections in its care. The Archaeology Department endeavors to encourage use of the collections for research and education while ensuring the preservation of the collections for future generations of scholars and students. Access to the archaeological collections is granted to researchers with clear research goals and institutional affiliations for legitimate research and educational purposes only. Some of the specimens in the collections are of a highly sensitive nature and access to these collections may be restricted. Access to the collections is subject to the University of Alaska Museum of the North (UAMN) Collections Management Policy and the Archaeology Department Collections Access Policy. Researchers interested in accessing the archaeology collections should contact the Archaeology Curator or Collections Manager.
