Scotland’s university museums are recognised globally as highly important and valued research assets, integral to the international research infrastructure, due to the collections and knowledge they hold. Our museums receive, and respond to, hundreds of research requests every year. If you are a researcher and would like to contact a university museum, details can be found in each of the UMIS members’ profiles on the Contact us page.

UMIS members also collaborate to carry out joint research projects into key priority areas, as well as working on discrete research projects themselves. Details of some of these projects – and their findings – can be found on this page.
