As an adjunct to the outstanding resources available within Glasgow University Library, the History of Art Resource and Postgraduate Centre serves the study needs of Undergraduates, Postgraduates and research and teaching staff.
The centre is administered by professional librarians who are always prepared to give advice and guidance on bibliographic matters or other resource requirements. They administer a collection of over 82,000 teaching slides, 5,000 books, selected periodical holdings and 15,000 exhibition and gallery catalogues.
An online catalogue of the book collection is available at: http://www.librarything.com/catalog/UofGHistoryofArt.
This catalogue is in the process of being created. Please contact either of the centre's managers if you can't find what you need.
Students must pay a £3 subscription fee each year to access the Resource Centre. This fee contributes towards the purchase of new resources and can be payed when using the centre for the first time.
Books, Journals, Exhibition Catalogues and Theses
Maximum items at any time: 5 volumes
Undergraduate: 2 nights or over weekend
Postgraduate: 1 Month
Honours and Postgraduate readers are also able to consult examples of dissertation or thesis work completed by former students. These can provide a useful guide to layout and strategy for major written projects. PhD theses are held by Glasgow University Library.
Powerpoint Presentations and Slides
Powerpoint presentations relevant to certain taught courses are also available for consultation. Should a Lecturer direct you to them, they will be available for review on the Resource Centre computers. At periods of high demand, a time booking system will be imposed to regulate their use. The powerpoint presentations are useful for retrospective study in preparation for visual tests, although bibliographic and electronic resources are also stressed at all stages of learning.
The Resource Centre's slide collection is being digitized. If you have questions regarding access to this collection, please ask one of the managers.
A small computer cluster provides links to University and Main Library services, including collection databases worldwide. The Resource Centre and Postgraduate room have Wi-fi access.
Postgraduate Study Space
Postgraduates have a dedicated room for their use containing study space, computers, a scanner, lockers and a digital projector. Keys for the lockers are available from the Resource Centre managers by paying a £5 deposit.
Please contact the managers for the security code to the study space room.
