Preparing for the arrival of the
new storage cabinets funded by an IMLS grant several years ago involved hard work by
many NPL and TNSC staff. The first task was to decide where the
new cabinets were to go, and make room for them. Since then many more new cabinets have been added.
Ground plans for location of
the first new cabinets
Space had to be created, and
layers of dust removed.
Many minerals had to be
identified, with the help of a
from UTDGS, before they could be moved.
At last the cleaned and
identified minerals are ready to be relocated!
