How do I request sampling and analysis on objects?

Our Sampling and Analysis Guidelines explain how to request scanning, casting and/or sampling of objects in Glasgow Life Museums’ collection, the criteria for making a decision, process for scanning, casting and/or sampling and conditions for sharing the research.

To request sampling and analysis please complete a Sampling and Analysis Request Form and send it to museumcollections@glasgowlife.org.uk. Depending on the size and nature of the request please allow six to twelve weeks after submission for a decision.
