Committee for the Museums and Scientific Collections (CMSC)

From 2002 until Michaelmas Term 2012, the Committee for the Museums and Scientific Collections (CMSC) advised Council on any matters connected with the University's museums and scientific collections, including the Botanic Garden, and facilitated co-ordination between the collections, and liaised with external bodies on museum and collections policy.

The committee terminated in 2012 when responsibilities for the University's museums passed to a new body constituted (as was its predecessor) under Part 25 of Council Regulations 15 of 2002 - the Oxford University Museums Board (OUMB) - that is responsible for the delivery of the University's strategic plan in so far as it refers to museums and for the fulfilment of the University's vision of its museums.

This website provides University staff with access to the CMSC's unreserved agendas, papers, and minutes.
