It is a collection of five hundred designs beginning with the advent of mechanical reproduction all the way through to the contemporary designs of today. In this extensive collection you will find everything from the Gutenberg Bible, Bauhaus, Andy Warhol, maps of the New York Subway to album covers and commissioned posters.

The Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections are delighted to announce the launch of a new online catalogue for our holdings, see: http://www.gsa.ac.uk/archives
We’ve recently migrated to a new system for our collections management activities and for our online catalogue which allows uses to search and browse our catalogue in more ways, including by collection title, image thumbnail, name, subject, place or date range. The new system will also allow Archives and Collections staff to better track additional information about the collections, such as locations and conservation information, so there’s lots of improvements going on behind the scenes too! You can find out about more new features by checking out our blog post here: https://gsaarchives.net/2019/06/announcing-a-new-online-catalogue-for-gsas-archives-and-collections/.
We really hope you enjoy using our new catalogue. If you need any help using the catalogue, or if you’re interested in finding our more about our holdings and how they can support learning, teaching and research, or if you’d like to make an appointment to view material in person, please contact us by emailing email@example.com
