Collections-based Biology in Dublin

Support and collaboration

We support a wide range of ongoing research efforts and projects by UCD staff as well as researchers from other institutions. Support includes collections access, documentation and managing donations of voucher collections. In particular, we offer training and support to UCD staff and students to augment existing research projects with historical collections resources.

CoBiD manages documentation efforts for the zoological collections of the National Museum of Ireland Natural History Division. For details of catalogue products, see the collections section of this website. If you have queries about other collections, loans, or sampling from collections, please contact us. Scientific collections are available by appointment to qualified researchers.

Reports on selected CoBiD research projects will be made available shortly in PDF format for download. Please contact us if you would like more information in the meantime. <>
