Access to our Collections

Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements and the temporary sharing of The Hunterian Collections Study Centre with staff and students from the College of Arts, we are unable to offer in-person research and teaching appointments for the duration of the 2020-21 academic year, and possibly impacting the start of the 2021-22 academic year.

We are able to offer a limited number of appointments to view collections remotely, via remote visualiser and video-conferencing facilities. We hope to return to normal operations  as soon as possible and will keep you updated on our website and social media. Please email for further details.

For all University of Glasgow teaching requests for Semester 2 in 2022 please email with the following details: class name and code, lecturer name, approximate student numbers, CMIS weeks of class and days and times. Lecturers will be contacted before the semester begins to establish object lists and any other requirements.
