This QTVR video enables you to explore the main room where the Curation takes place. Curation is the final step in accessioning bones into the collection.The bones arrive here from the Preparatory Lab, having been cleaned, repaired, and numbered. The opening scene of the QTVR movie shows double doors sporting Jurassic Park signs.  To the right from there are shelves with large bones arrayed. Next comes the special white rotating table where the bones are photographed, shown here with aPachycephalosaurus skull, specimen number HRS00005, in place. For more information on the table click on “Rotating Table” on the menu in upper left. Farther around to the right an oak table supports our computer monitors and work areas. In the background are four gray metal Lane Cabinets with skull bones and teeth. Through the double doors with the tree motif is another room for large bones and another set of double doors that lead to the rows of storage cabinets where the bulk of the collection resides in gray Lane Cabinets. Click on “Storage Drawers” to see what these look like. Farther to the right are the racks with the femora, and in the foreground farther to the right are tables with incoming specimens displayed. Have fun!
