Home and Away: Other Libraries in Glasgow

Other Libraries in Glasgow

We have a great library here at RCS, but it may be useful to you to know about other libraries in Glasgow that you can use for comfortable study-space.

·         You can become a member of the public libraries here, which means you can borrow materials and use their electronic resources as well as our own. 
·         Local university libraries can also be used for study-space or to consult their stock; additionally, research students have some borrowing privileges (see below).

Glasgow Life (Public Libraries)

You can register with Glasgow Libraries online, and their 24/7 online research materials complement our own.  Notably, they subscribe to Proquest, which gives great subject access to the world of knowledge.  You have to be a registered reader to access their online resources.
Glasgow has 32 community libraries including a lending section in the Mitchell. The Mitchell itself is a large city library with extensive resources and study space.  You will also find warm, comfortable study-space in the community libraries.
