Request a loan

Borrowing specimens and sample material from the UND paleontology collections is possible--and even encouraged! Requests for material should be sent to Joseph Hartman at and should include:
- specimen number(s) as listed on NodakPaleo or other source
- location of specimen as listed on NodakPaleo or other source
- taxonomic identification (just to be sure we're sending you the right thing)
- a link to the specimen page on NodakPaleo, if possible

Details of the loan will be determined by the collection manager. We request that specimens utilized for publication are listed as having come from this collection and that a digital copy of the publication be sent to Dr. Hartman to be included on NodakPaleo (if permission is granted) or stored at UND for other researchers.
