The Committee meets three times a year and reports directly to the Knowledge Strategy Committee.

University Collections Advisory Committee (UCAC)

UCAC provides a framework to support, develop and promote these collections in line with best professional practice. UCAC also fulfils a necessary role in advising on and approving documentation required for external validation (eg Museums Accreditation Scheme); the Committee is the formal University Collections route to Court (via KSC), and members advise Court on responses to repatriation requests. UCAC homologates loans out from University Collections. It works in parallel with Library Committee which deals with the general library collections, access and services. UCAC is a key route of advocacy for the University’s collections both within and outwith Information Services Group. The members are senior representatives from the different professional curatorial areas and from major centres of collections activity. The Committee meets three times a year and reports directly to Knowledge Strategy Committee.
