Glasgow University Library Turns 41 Today
On this day, September 30th, in 1968, the new Glasgow University Library opened in its purpose built building, moving there from within the Gilbert Scott Building (the Main Building) where it had been situated for almost 100 years.
I’ve shown the outside of the Library many times before, and the above I thought was fitting to demonstrate the modern appearance of the University Library, being still young at 41. The website address is written in very large letters above the Welcome Desk on Level 2, just as you enter throuhg the main entrance, ensuring that anyone who visits the library will know the address by heart.
A big thank you to the staff on hand for allowing me to take this photograph. The University Library’s Flickr account has more photos of the Library.
