The BNHM Query application is currently down for service. The application itself has some security holes and also was running using outdated data. Because of these issues, we have decided to turn the application on March 30, 2015The BNHM Informatics Group, BSCIT, is currently working to create an updated application using up-to-date museum data which should be live by Summer of 2015.

Meanwhile, you can search BNHM museums for specimen records individually:

  • Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (also VertNet)
  • Museum of Paleontology (also VertNet)
  • The University and Jepson Herbaria (also Consortium of California Herbaria)
  • The Essig Museum of Entomology
  • The University of California Botanical Garden
  • The Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology
  • More tools for searching BNHM collections are located on the left pane.
