In September 2009, The Micropaleontology Project moved to offices provided by Queens College, CUNY (City University of New York). The generous cooperative arrangement offered by the College, 79 years after the Project was founded with the the support of the people of New York City, ensures our continuation as an independent non-profit organization in service to the profession (SEP/09).

Ellis and Messina Catalogues online were improved by new high-resolution scans of the complete Foraminifera, Ostracoda and Diatom pages in mid 2005 (JAN/06).

In July 2003, Micropaleontology Press separated from the American Museum of Natural History, its home since 1942, and resumed independent existence as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, the Micropaleontology Project, Inc. (JUL/03).
