Miller Nichols Library: Dean’s Gallery, 4th Floor

Rocks, minerals, and fossils are windows into the past and are used to reveal the events and changes in the Earth over the past 4.6 billion years. They also provide resources essential to civilization, and display beauty in color and form in myriad ways.

Dr. James B. Murowchick is an Associate Professor in the UMKC Department of Geosciences. He has carefully curated an array of rocks, minerals, fossils, and natural resources from his personal collection and beyond just for our UMKC community.

These are the materials beneath our feet, and we welcome you to experience them up close in the Dean’s Gallery on the 4th floor of the library.
