Our Annual Conference in Miami, US, was an extraordinary success!

Largely due to the partnership with, and commitment of the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries, US, our latest annual conference at the University of Miami mobilised almost 400 participants from 23 countries. 

One of the UMAC-AAMG 2018 sessions, at the University of Miami, 21-24 June 2018.

UMAC is grateful to the AAMG and we hope to continue developing activities together in the near future!

New publication on Best Practices for Academic Museums

The Association of Academic Museums and Galleries (AAMG), USA, has just released an important publication on  Best Practices. It  covers all major areas of university museum practice – from collections to fundraising and from governance to ethics – reuniting into a single source what is generally fragmented and dispersed. It has eight chapters and 10 appendices, multiple examples, links and legal references.

The ‘AAMG Professional Practices for Academic Museums and Galleries‘ is undoubtedly of broader interest to university museums and collections all over the world, making it an important resource for colleagues outside the USA.

Congratulations to the AAMG!
