Assessing the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on University Museums

Assessing the Impact of Covid 19 on University Museums‘, results from a survey undertaken by the UMG committee at the end of April.

This report is a clear and powerful document, capturing both the immediate situation during the lock down period and flagging up key concerns for University Museums in the months and years ahead – some of these are common to the wider museum sector, but others relate specifically to our context within Higher Education.

There are also strong messages about the opportunities present in recovery for university museums.

Thank you again to everyone who contributed to this exercise and particular thanks to Helen Mark, Data Manager for the Manchester Museum Partnership, University of Manchester, who prepared the report.
