Online Museum Resources

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

Our museums and galleries may now be closed due to the current emergency but we’re still working hard to ensure online access to our amazing collections and activities. 

Hopefully many of you have been following our social media posts on Facebook at UoDMuseums and on Twitter @UoD_Museums. We’ve now set up a webpage to bring together our various digital resources here.

Here’s a taster of what’s currently on offer:

Short films by the curator exploring some of the highlights of our collections
Our popular colouring sheets from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum now available as pdfs for your to print and use at home
Hi-res images for you to use as virtual backgrounds for your online meetings
A curated selection of some of the best DJCAD animation films
And as we’re currently unable to process orders from our online shop, we’ve made a selection of our publications available online absolutely free  

The site also provides links to existing digital content such as our online museum database, our 3D scans of zoology specimens and a virtual tour of the Zoology Museum. And we’ll be adding more content in the coming weeks so keep checking back!
