    In 2010, Leicestershire County Council Museums acquired funding to undertake collections management work on their entomological collections. The remit of the resulting project was to incorporate store-box material into the main Coleoptera series. A total of 22,300 specimens were transferred and the collection was re-organised to allow for this expansion. Identification was carried out on the majority of material that was processed. Documentation and accession-labelling were also undertaken. As a result of the project, the collection is more accessible and less vulnerable to pests and to damage.
