Description: Content and context of data, if known:

Our pollen data is an important component of our paleontology collections that need to be shared. Also it promotes our compliance with the Paleotolologic Resources Law. Move the Pollen Collections into the Denver Fossil repository. The sole microscope that holds the internal x,y grid of specimen slide location reference points is frozen. It needs to be serviced while preserving the x,y internal grid system. An external grid possibilities will be researched. Photographs taken of our type pollen specimens and fossil pollen database updated. Without a proper grid reference the specimen slides and pollen data are not useful.
