dc.description.abstractUniversity museums have a rich history, having played a crucial role in the development of collections and museums. Some of the most important museum collections today are to be found within or attached to a university. However, university museums also have identity, resource and audience issues to address, that - if not resolved positively - can restrict their influence and lead to frustrations of unfulfilled potential professionally. They may feel divided, under-resourced, and be insufficiently contributing to new museological developments beyond the university setting, in the larger world of museums located visibly in the public sphere. On the other hand, university museums may be confined even within their own campus location, and be insufficiently reaching out to their multiple communities close at hand. It is to be hoped that the new International Committee of ICOM - ICOM-UMAC - can assist in analysing these issues and stimulate university museums to make an expansive contribution both to their own academic communities and to museum developments generally.eng
dc.description.abstractOs museus universitârios possuem urn longo e fecundo passado, tendo desempenhado uni pape! crucial na evoluçào dos museus e das colecçôes em geral. Na realidade, algumas das mais importantes colecçôes encontram-se, presentemente, ou no seio ou associadas a urna universidade. Porém, os museus universitârios no seu todo necessitare de enfrentar algumas questòes problemàtica» que, se nào forem devidamente resolvidas, poderào reduzir a sua esfera de influéncia e suscitar frustraçôes nos sens profissionais. Por exemplo, muitos museus universitârios sentir-se-ào divididos, sub-financiados, poderào julgar que nào contribuem de forma eficaz para os mais récentes desenvolvimentos museológicos exteriores aos muros do campus, no mundo mais vasto dos outros museus. Por outro lado, os museus universitârios poderào sentir-se isolados no pròprio interior do campus, com dificuldades em atingir e servir as diversas comunidades que lhes estào mais próximas. O novo comité international do ICOM - ICOM-UMAC ~ deverà apoiar o debate destas questòes e estimular nos museus universitârios a necessidade de contribuir de forma intensa quer para a pròpria comunidade académica quer para 0 desenvolvimentos dos museus em geraì.por
