University Collections Advisory Committee

University Collections includes all the heritage collections owned or cared for by the University of Edinburgh.  The mission of University Collections is “Preserving, promoting and providing access to the University’s historic and cultural collections”.

UCAC provides a framework to support, develop and promote these collections in line with best professional practice.  KSC has recently approved a change to the remit given the growing convergence between the collections of art, museum objects, archives, rare books and manuscripts, facilitated by the Centre for Research Collections.  This convergence is reflected in recent formal documentation (e.g. for professional accreditation), which in turn reflects the developing strategic and operational needs of the collections and associated services.
