The Glasgow Guardian Digital Archive contains searchable digital editions of the Gilmorehill Globe, Gilmorehill Guardian and Glasgow University Guardian. Together they represent the entirety of student newspaper journalism at the University of Glasgow and we believe the most complete collection of student journalism in the UK. The papers offer a unique insight into student and campus life for current students, staff, alumni and researchers. Figures of national importance such as Donald Dewar, John Smith, Andrew Neil, William Boyd, Iain Martin and Sir Neil MacCormick have graced the pages. Stories range from the most trivial to issues of national importance with everything in between, written in styles that can be serious, humorous, irreverent or downright offensive!
This project is a collaboration between the University's Archive, Library and Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute. The current site is the first phase of the project so please read the accompanying Technical Information before searching.
The project received generous support from the University's Chancellor's Fund, Friends of the University Library and Students' Representative Council.
