The University of Glasgow Library is one of the most important and widely used facilities on campus. Central to the student experience at Glasgow, and important to the wider community, we aim to provide exceptional services and resources.
Our collections cover most branches of the arts, sciences, social sciences and medicine. They are complemented by rare books, manuscripts and early photographs in our Special Collections Department which has an international reputation that attracts scholars from all parts of the world. Our Archive Services hold records documenting the history of the University since 1451 and the history of Scottish businesses since the late 1700s.
With around 800 student computers; wifi throughout the building; more than 2000 study spaces which are zoned for silent, quiet and group study; a social learning space and cafe; and variety of comfy seats, there are plenty of reasons to come to the Library!
We're open from 7:15am until 2am, 361 days of the year, with staffed services available from 9am-5:55pm Monday - Friday and 1pm-4:55pm at weekends during semester. Staff at the Welcome Desk, close to the Library entrance, are happy to help with any questions you have.
