aims

  • to demonstrate the value of university museum and gallery collections in the delivery of Higher Education teaching and in enhancing the learning process
  • to enhance the Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER) through integrated resources utilising important museum, gallery and archive collections
  • to increase access to important material in the collections of the University of Aberdeen for teaching and learning across the Higher Education community
