Same here at OSU classes are now online for two weeks or more, but the University is still open for faculty and staff… for the time being. The K. C. Emerson Entomology Museum here at OSU will be closed however, as I am working from home as much as possible (thus putting our renovations on hold). I’m asking all who have specimens on loan to them to hang on to least until May. I know we have a few out at the moment.


Thanks and stay healthy,

The entomology collection at University of Colorado (Boulder) is also closed.  We are now working from home, so I’m available over email, but no visitors, loans, student employees, volunteers…  The various collections managers are rotating on checking the building for security and mechanical mishaps.  All mail is being held at CU’s distribution center (so don’t send us any packages, please).  We are essentially shut down.  I don’t know when this will end, but the University has moved all classes to an online format and cancelled graduation ceremonies for May 7th.
