In December 2018, the first edition of the CAUMAC Network Bulletin was sent out via email to all individual and institution members who are part of the Network. The Bulletin will be published four times a year to coincide with the beginning of each season and aims to provide a useful forum for those interested in university-based museums and collections.
If you have a news story about your collection and activities, an upcoming event or have recently read something interesting about university collections you would like to share, then we would love to hear from you. Submissions of up to 300 words are welcome along with images.

The concept of a newsletter reporting on activities and sharing information about the network was replaced by blog posts, then in 2018 we decided to trial quarterly newsletters which are emailed to current members. While in the past, CAUMAC produced and distributed a newsletter as its primary means of communication among the membership, we now communicate with our members by emailed newsletters, Twitter, Facebook, and via this wordpress site. Links to archived newsletters are provided below. More will be added as they come to hand. If you have any copies (paper or digital) of our old newsletters please get in touch with us. Hopefully this site will eventually offer full coverage of our previous newsletters.
