Glasgow School of Art Library closure

From 8th June until 15th September  inclusive, the Glasgow School of Art Library is planning a refurbishment of the ground floor of the main Library. That means there will be no access to borrow or use the bulk of the Library’s collections during this period.   They will continue to process SCONUL applications, but applicants should be advised services will be reduced.  All digital collections will continue to be fully available over the summer but only a very limited selection from the print collection, please advise your users to consult the Library website for full details before visiting.


For further information please read this blog post.

SCONUL access to the University of Glasgow Library

If you use, or plan to use, Glasgow University Library under the SCONUL scheme please note the following:

For the months of April and May, access to the University of Glasgow Library will be restricted for students from other Universities and Colleges.

Students who show their student card (or SCONUL Reference card) from their home institution to enter the Library, will only be allowed access after 17.00 weekdays and all day at the weekends.

This is in response to feedback from our own students about pressure on study spaces in the Library.

Please note SCONUL members who enrol at our Membership Desk and are given library cards, can come in at anytime as they are full members. The access change only affects those who show their student ID cards to get in.
