On its tenth anniversary the Harold W. Manter Laboratory, Division of Parasitology, University of Nebraska State Museum, was designated by the American Society of Parasitologists as one of four National Resource Centers for Parasitology in the United States. Collections include more than 80,000 lots of animal parasites many of which are primary types, more than 40,000 reprints, 250 taxonomic notebooks containing original and emended morphological descriptions of digenetic trematodes, runs of 18 parasitological journals, and books of historical and contemporary interest. Collections are of state, regional, national, and international scope, with special emphasis on marine parasitology. The Laboratory is fulfilling an important role in conservation of specimens and literature, graduate teaching; and research.
