Summary

"The main mission of the privately funded Tricottet Collection is the preservation of historic natural history items. By this term, we refer to objects relating to the field of natural history, which are associated with individuals, institutions or events in history.

The purpose of the Tricottet Collection is threefold:
- To PRESERVE and CATALOG historic natural history specimens, especially minerals, fossils, shells and meteorites.
- To PRESERVE and ARCHIVE original documents relating to natural history collecting.
- To RESEARCH and EDUCATE on the subject of natural history collecting through history."

The Library of Natural History and Library of Meteoritics sections contain bibliographic records of relevant primary and secondary sources. The in-progress Manuscript & Correspondence Archive offers scans and transcriptions of primary documents covering paleontology, zoology, and meteoritics.
