Highest Institutional Priority: An Off-campus Curation and Research Facility

As the state’s archaeological repository, we collect objects and preserve them in perpetuity for present-day and future research, as well as for teaching purposes. The collections grow by 1,000 cubic feet per year. This makes ASM the largest and busiest state-run archaeological curation facility in the nation! Help ensure that we will have the space to continue to meet our mission for decades to come by contributing to a new off-campus curation and research facility. Simply click here and choose "Curation Facility" in the designation area. Thank you!
