The Visitors of the Ashmolean Museum are responsible, under Council, for the safe keeping, preservation, orderly administration, finance, and general policy of the museum. They are expected to co-operate with the Committee for the Museums and Scientific Collections in facilitating co-ordination between the University's museums and scientific collections, particularly with respect to planning, allocation and use of resources, and the development, care, and promotion of the collections as national and international resources both for teaching and research and for public access.
