CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Mammoth teeth, Native American pottery and an early 20th century stereoscope are among the items on display as a part of the new exhibit "Treasures: A Sampling of the UNI Museums Collection" on the first floor of the University of Northern Iowa's Rod Library until Feb. 28, 2014. These objects are only a selection of more than 110,000 objects in the broad areas of biology, geology, history and anthropology/world cultures currently in the UNI Museums collection.

The UNI Museums have long been committed to contributing to lifelong learning and the exchange of ideas, and to fostering an appreciation for both natural resources and our cultural heritage. "We hope this exhibit will help UNI students and the community to understand the value of the resources available through the Museums,” said Katherine Martin, head of collections and museums at the Rod Library.

This and other exhibits planned for various locations across campus are intended to support coursework and research by university students, faculty and staff, while also providing some access to Museums resources to the general public.
