Manchester Museum Herbarium - temporary suspension of some loans.

Beginning in August 1998 all specimens (except bryophytes and
lichens) in the Manchester Museum Herbarium, Manchester, England,
will be packed for temporary storage.  Work to be carried out in the
Herbarium will include new shelving, Solander boxes for storage of
all specimens and installation of ventilation ducts for a new
exhibition on the floor below.

During that time, which is anticipated to be twelve months, only
mosses, liverworts and lichens will be accessible; other collections
will be inaccessible to visitors and for loans.  We regret the
inconvenience this may cause, but look forward to the increased
efficiency and improved storage conditions that the changes will

We are particularly grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the
Wellcome Institute for support in this project.
