REPOSITORY RECEIPT FOR COLLECTIONS Artifacts and specimens recovered from BLM-administered lands are Federal property, and must be managed in a manner consistent with Federal stewardship responsibilities for museum collections. Cultural or paleontological resource permits for collecting activities require that the permittee arrange for curation of artifacts and specimens in an appropriate repository. Collections must be deposited in a repository for curation within one year of completion of the permitted project, unless alternate arrangements have been approved by the BLM permitting official.
This Deposition of Museum Collections Confirmation and Inventory form is required as a condition of the permit and must be completed for all museum collections originating from BLM administered lands, with the associated documentation, to ensure collections are deposited in an appropriate curatorial facility. A receiving document generated by the repository may be substituted if it contains the same information as this form.
All information requested on this form must be completed by the permittee and repository officials.
Permittees must provide an itemized inventory of the objects, lots, samples, and associated documentation to be deposited attached to this statement. The inventory must include site or locality designation, number of units per material type according to BLM and the repository standards. A complete collection includes:
I certify that the inventory represents all materials and associated documentation from the work performed under this permit (complete deposit).
