Until completion of analysis, artifacts are stored in large trays before they are transferred to museums for permanent curation.


OCA holds Curation Agreements with the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University of New Mexico; the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe; and in the past has held agreements with the Centennial Museum at The University of Texas (El Paso) and the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory at the University of Texas (Austin). OCA maintains a regularly updated set of procedures for submission of collections for each of these institutions, and verifies their applicability at the outset of each project where curation is anticipated.
