article description
The Association for the Study of University Protocol, founded in 1997, brings together professionals in Spanish universities who are responsible for the organization of academic ceremonies, university traditions, as well as the new activities derived from those traditions which maintain the university in its place. In the course of the activities of the Association it soon became apparent that it was necessary to understand with the greatest possible degree of accuracy ways in which academical dress was used and that it was important to establish a catalogue of suggestions on its use and of the current use of colours. The fruits of this labour, co-ordinated by the authors of this article, were elaborated in such a Catalogue. [Excerpt from Introduction].
