The Australian National Insect Collection has a range of collection-based resources for researchers and visitors to use. It includes information about loans, protocols, and policies as well as access to information about our holdings.
ANIC is an important research collection used by CSIRO researchers, university staff and students, and scientists from Australian and international research organisations.
Researchers can come to visit or borrow material from our facility. Only researchers who are associated with a CITES-registered institution can borrow material for research purposes.
Destructive or invasive sampling of specimens for research purposes generally involves irreversible changes (including complete destruction) to the samples.
