Search the Collection

The links below allow access to identifications, metadata, maps, tissues, and images associated with the more than 200,000 specimens in the OSIC.   The Specify Webportal is hosted locally at Oregon State University, and allows easy mapping of specimen records, display of specimen images, and viewing of collection sites.  It does not, however, offer a direct download of records. The search via FishNet2 allows download of records to .csv tables, Excel spreadsheets or Google Maps .kmz files, offers a powerful polygon-based geographical search, and provides the ability to search for specimens housed at our sister collections simultaneously with searches of OSIC material. It does not, however, provide access to specimen images. 

Both searches are based on static snapshots of the collection.  Though we update these regularly, they may not include the most recent additions to the OSIC.  For information on recent accessions or to request loans, please contact the collection’s curator, Brian Sidlauskas,
