Reading Nature's Library

Citizen science projects at Manchester Museum

Latest activity {{ }} {{ update.activity }} just now.


Reading Nature's Library is a citizen science project where anyone can help the Museum catalogue the collection.

The collection is broken down into projects, such as fossil corals. New projects will be added over time as we photograph the collection.

It's free to join and take part, and you'll be helping make the amazing collection available to everyone!

Once you've signed up you can share your favourite images with friends and family, or see if they can help with any hard to read labels.
