    Introduction

    MRC collections are hosted by more than a dozen major institutions around the world.
    There are 9 identical sets of prepared material for each of the four fossil groups.
    These are held either in full collections, which have all four fossil groups,
    or satellite collections, which typically hold only material for one group.
