U of Wyoming: UW Geological Museum Receives Grant to Digitize Wyoming’s Rare Fossil Mammal Collection

University of Wyoming: UW Geological Museum Receives Grant to Digitize Wyoming’s Rare Fossil Mammal Collection. “The University of Wyoming Geological Museum has only one-half of 1 percent of its fossils on display to the public. The other 99.5 percent are stored away, and very few, save some visiting researchers, rarely see these hidden treasures in any form. Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the museum will be able to make more of its rare fossil mammal collection available to researchers, schools and the public through digitization of roughly 5,000 items.”
