Collections departments

Our collections represent astonishing diversity, from fossils showing evidence of the earliest forms of life, to internationally important material from across the world.

Our staff hold a wealth of knowledge and expertise. They can provide advice on collections, their identification, care and management to representatives from organisations holding a public collection in Scotland.

Requests can be made by email to the relevant member of staff in our collections directorate. Our directory is organised to help you find the support and advice you are looking for. Our Guide to Collections Advice tells you what advice we can offer you and how.
