Discovery Day at Main Library George Square

The Library is holding a Discovery Day on Tuesday 30th January, to showcase some of our primary resource materials and discovery tools. Everyone is welcome to come along to the first floor of the Main Library at George Square, between 10.00am and 3.00pm, to explore our primary resource databases and collections.

Representatives from 3 of the major publishers of digitised primary source collections, Adam Matthew, Gale Cengage and ProQuest, and our very own Centre for Research Collections (CRC), will be on hand to help students and staff navigate through and find useful material in the huge range of primary sources we have access to online at the Library.

Between the 3 publishers the Library has access to over 60 digital primary source collections (that figure becomes over 300 if you count the fact that some databases, like Archives Unbound, are made up of lots of individual databases and collections), giving us access to millions of pages and images of digitised primary source material at our fingers tips.

For more information please see:
