Since its inception in 1879, the USGS has collected and preserved geoscience data and sample collections, which include millions of paleobiological specimens stored in USGS facilities and at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Washington, D.C. As one of the largest paleontological collections in the world, the USGS paleontology collection is invaluable, as many specimens may no longer be collected due to high field collection costs or inaccessibility to sampling sites, which have been restricted, urbanized, or modified via landscape processes. The USGS Denver Paleontology Collection includes ~1.2 million specimens stored in 1000 Smithsonian museum cases. The primary collections...

The Geological Survey of Alabama (GSA) maintains an extensive collection of more than 320,000 fossils. The GSA collections have been inventoried. The GSA continues to generate descriptive metadata describing the fossil specimens, including approximate sampling locations (county centroids are used). The valuable specimens in the paleontology collection have been amassed since the 1800s and are available for public research. Data capture and preservation of the fossil collection managed by the Geological Survey of Alabama is important as a research collection and helps in the studies of paleontology, paleoecology, paleogeography, stratigraphy, and geology.

In 2008, Virginia Department of Energy received by donation from the University of Virginia (UVA) a large collection of rock, mineral, and fossil specimens that was at risk of imminent disposal or dispersal due to the lack of adequate storage facilities. The collection includes many valuable and irreplaceable geologic specimens collected in Virginia by UVA students, faculty, and geoscientists from the early Virginia Geological Survey. Parts of the collection were at one time displayed in the Lewis Brooks Hall of Natural Science, which opened in 1877. Following the closure of the UVA Department of Geology in the 1960s, the collection was moved to various warehouse storage areas, where it was largely forgotten and...
