The Asteroidea collection of the Museum of Zoology "Prof. Adão José Cardoso" located at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) is being implemented and has nearly 30 lots with 40 recorded specimens. The material is preserved in alcohol 70%. These specimens were sampled by the program Biota/FAPESP - Bentos Marinho, developed in São Paulo. The cataloging and digitalization of the collection are in progress using the MS-Access data bank manager. Most part of the collection has a scientific purpose, destined to researchers interested in Asteroidea. However, it is available for graduating and post-graduating students.
