Your University, One Photo at a Time

Welcome to Special Collections

Welcome to Special Collections

Up on the 12th floor of the University Library is the Special Collections section of the Library, which houses an “internationally significant collection of manuscripts and printed works” (Wikipedia). The display case in the foyer, seen in the photo above, contains a changing exhibition of rare materials. At the moment it contains Eighteenth Century books.

I’ve been meaning to pop by upstairs for the longest time, just to check it out. I finally made it up there today while looking for a good spot to take a photo of the Main Building from high up. (I’ll post one of those pictures tomorrow.) You can find more information about the Special Collections on their website at The University of Glasgow Library’s blog has its own section on the Special Collections.
