Botanists carrying out research into plant groups are loaned specimens from herbaria around Australia and overseas. Specimens from the State Herbarium Collection are available for loan both nationally and internationally, but can only be loaned to recognised research institutions for bona fide research projects. In order to ensure that these collections are used in the best interest of appropriate contemporary studies and are protected and effectively preserved in the interest of future research, the recipient of the loan must fulfil the requirements outlined in the State Herbarium s Mandatory Loan Conditions.

For all loan enquiries, please contact us and for more information, read the State Herbarium policies.
