Advisory Services

Museums and Collections Services staff members provide advice, assistance and information to the curators and collections staff of registered collections on campus, to the university community at large, and to the local, national and international communities. These services focus on all areas of museum practice, within the limits of available staff and resources.

What Is a Registered Collection?

Under the U of A Museums and Collections Policy, museum collections must be registered with Museums and Collections Services in order to acquire museum objects and operate museum facilities that contain museum objects and collections.  All 29 museum collections operating at the University of Alberta are registered, and authorized to undertake various museum-related activities.
