LEMUR has been designed around a series of specific undergraduate courses for the University of Aberdeen in Cultural History, History and Philosophy of Science, History of Art and Physics. These courses are:

Cultural History

History and Philosophy of Science
History and Philosophy of Science 1
History and Philosophy of Science 2
Modern Physical Sciences

History of Art

The LEMUR database brings together a wealth of material from the University's collections that can be used for teaching in the Arts, Social Sciences and Sciences not only at Aberdeen but also more widely throughout the Higher Education community. High quality digital images and the basic computer catalogue will be enhanced with contextualising material, such as early hand-written inventories and letters from the collectors, as well as a virtual re-creation of the displays at Marischal Museum.
