Glasgow University Archive Services

Glasgow University Archive Services is a unique learning and corporate heritage resource that is an inspiration for all. We hold the records that document the history of the University and its management, staff and students from its foundation in 1451 to the present day.

We also have one of the largest collections of historical business records in Europe and it includes much of the archive of Scottish industries such as banking, retail, distilling and shipbuilding.
