Glasgow University Archive Services

Glasgow University Archive Services (GUAS) is home to the University's records of permanent and historical value. These records, dating back to the University's foundation in 1451, detail the history of our staff and students, along with our business, administrative, and research functions for the last 560 years. GUAS also houses the Scottish Business Archive, which manages collections related to Scotland's shipbuilding, railroads, brewing and distilling, retail, and entrepeneurial history.

The University Records Centre is overseen by GUAS, providing a direct line from active records created and used today to the permanent history of the University. Many of the records maintained by current staff will transition from the office to the URC and eventually into archival holdings.

Additional information on GUAS, including details of their wide-ranging and diverse collections, is found on the Archive Services website.
