Scottish universities hold a high proportion of Scotland's nationally important collections - more than 1.8 million items. The Revealing the Hidden Collections website gives information about all the material through almost 2000 detailed descriptions of collections and an increasing number of records of individual items and collections, making available all records through a single search maintained by the Culture Grid.

The partners in the Scottish Funding Council supported project are the University of Aberdeen, University of Dundee, University of Edinburgh, Glasgow School of Art, University of Glasgow, Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, University of St Andrews and the University of Stirling. They are all members of UMIS: University Museums in Scotland. The Hunterian Museum & Art Gallery is the partner for this project at the University of Glasgow.
