World Database of University Museums and Collections

UMAC (ICOM’s International Committee for University Museums and Collections) has renovated the design and functionality of its World Database of University Museums and Collections:

http://university-museums-and-collections.net/

The new database is more attractive, functional and user-friendly. It is also much easier to navigate and now includes maps and images.

There are many UK university museums and collections represented in the database.  UMG members are urged to check that they are included in the database and that if they are, their information is up to date.  Museums can edit their own records on the database.

If your museum or collection is not represented, simply press ‘participate’ while you are in the database and complete the online form.
