UCC Curatorial Collections
The UCC Curatorial Collections supports and engages with UCC’s ambitions for interdisciplinary approaches to research, teaching and knowledge exchange. To this end, the core mission of Heritage Services and the University Curator will be to care for and develop the UCC Curatorial Collections, and to share and communicate knowledge about them.
The Curatorial Collections include a rich variety of historic artefacts acquired since 1849, ranging from early teaching equipment to plaster casts, portraits and ogham stones to architectural models. These are cared for by the University Curator in Heritage Services, who aims to operate using recognised professional standards and procedures.
