The University of Aberdeen is delighted to bring the UMIS/SUSCAG conference to Aberdeen on 26th and 27th January 2017.
Increasingly, museums, archives and special collections are moving beyond providing services to schools to developing programmes to engage more with students and other adults. This includes a wide range of activities from supporting research and teaching to volunteer programmes, social events and the co-production of exhibitions and public events. While engaging with post-school age audiences has become a particular focus for university collections, it is also of growing importance to many other museums and archive services.
This conference draws together museum staff, archivists, librarians, researchers, students and others who have developed effective and sustainable initiatives and so help to develop models of best practice for governance, management, partnership and delivery.
