Worldwide Database of University Museums and Collections

Worldwide Database of University Museums and Collections
The Worldwide Database of University Museums and Collections is a project developed in 2001 by UMAC, the International Committee for University Museums and Collections of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), under the coordination of Dr. Cornelia Weber, Coordination Centre for Scientific University Collections in Germany.
It results from the recognition that universities and, more generally, higher education institutions, have museums, collections and cultural heritage of scientific, artistic and historical significance, yet many remain poorly known by their communities and the general public.
For more information, visit the website of UMAC, the International Committee of ICOM for University Museums and Collections!

Relaunch

In 2016-2017, the Worldwide Database of University Museums and Collections went through considerable redevelopment aimed at introducing a new design, new functionalities and a more user-friendly interface. In April 2017, it was relaunched.
