Abstract:

Founded under King James II in 1451, Glasgow University and its fledgling library has developed across the centuries from the Renaissance and the Reformation, through the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution, to become one of the major universities of the world. The Library stands high, physically on University Avenue, and on the shoulders of those who have gone before, in the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake and for the benefit of all. The digital revolution, equal to the fifteenth-century invention of the printing press which democratised learning, is enabling the Library to unlock its many treasures and make them more widely available here and overseas - book jacket.
