"Intensifying support for and increasing audiences in university museums and collections: Proceedings of the First conference of the International Committee of ICOM for University Museums and Collections (UMAC), Barcelona, 2-4 July 2001"

The Spring 2002 issue of the journal Museologia, published by the Museu de Ciência of the University of Lisbon, is entirely devoted to the proceedings of the first UMAC conference, which was held in Barcelona in 2001. The papers given at this meeting attempt to illustrate how diverse university museums are and what a wide range of disciplines they encompass, and to describe the difficulties they sometimes face. Many university museums are not as well-known as they should be, and one of UMAC's aims is to raise their profile with governing bodies and the general public.

Le numéro du printemps 2002 de la revue Museologia, publiée par le Museu de Ciência de l'université de Lisbonne, est entièrement consacré aux actes de la première réunion de l'UMAC, à Barcelone en 2001. Les communications présentées lors de cette réunion entendent rendre compte de la diversité des musées universitaires, de la variété des disciplines qu'ils embrassent, ainsi que des difficultés qu'ils peuvent connaître. En effet, les musées universitaires sont pour une grande part méconnus. Un des objectifs de l'UMAC est donc de mieux faire connaître ceux-ci auprès des institutions de tutelle comme du grand public.
