Glasgow University Library

Many of you will have been told about the access arrangements we have with Glasgow University Library during your library inductions. To access over 170 UK HE libraries, including Glasgow University, simply sign up to the free SCONUL Access scheme at the GSA Library Service Desk. You will be given a SCONUL card which you can take along to the libraries of your choice with your GSA matriculation card - you will then be issued with a library card from those libraries. All staff, postgraduate students, and part-time or distance-learning undergraduates will gain borrowing rights to these libraries. Full-time undergraduates will gain reference access. For further information, see the Library Website. Link:

If you are planning a visit to Glasgow University Library, which is strong in subjects such as philosophy, psychology, economics, anthropology, politics and social theory, the following video might help you get started.

Library Inductions 2007

The Library inductions season 2007 is now in full-swing, with students receiving tailored subject-specific introductions to Library print and electronic resources from our Subject Librarians. This year these face-to-face inductions are complemented by online inductions, all accessible from the Library's VLE course.
