The Western Australian Herbarium (PERTH) will be moving to new premises
as part of a Biodiversity Science Centre in May 2010. The building will
be a state of the art complex with improved facilities for the
collection, staff and visitors. This will inevitably cause a disruption
to our normal services.


This advice is to inform you that the inward and outward loans program,
exchange program, image, scanning and identification requests will close
on December 31st 2009. Requests lodged before this date will be
honoured. From this date urgent requests will be considered on a
case-by-case basis, as servicing the request will depend on its size and
the accessibility of the collections at that time. 


The collection will remain open to visitors until March 15th 2010.


It is anticipated that all programs including visitor access will reopen
July 5th 2010.


Of course, the usual caveat applies: with any building project there is
always scope for delay, so there may be further slippage in the dates.
Updates will be provided when available.


If you require further information don't hesitate to contact the
Collections Manager, Karina Knight. Karina.Knight at dec.wa.gov.au or on
