Acces SSN: The Subject Specialist Network for museum curators looking after archaeological collections from Egypt and Sudan in the UK
ACCES is the first curators’ group in the UK for curators who are responsible for archaeological collections from ancient Egypt and Sudan. Founded in May 2006, the group grew out of an MLA-funded Specialist Subject Network in Egyptology. For more information, visit www.mla.gov.uk.
The aims and objectives of ACCES are:• to promote the interests of archaeological collections from Egypt and the Sudan in the UK
• to encourage good practice in the curatorship, collections management, and interpretation of UK collections from Egypt and Sudan
• to encourage, facilitate, and disseminate research on UK collections from Egypt and Sudan
• to foster networks and collaborations among museum professionals, university academics, and postgraduate students working in Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology and philology, museum studies, and archaeological conservation
• to promote public engagement with UK collections from Egypt and Sudan, to encourage new audiences and increase educational use.
