Artist and GSA Tutor David Bellingham has curated a display of books, publications and concrete poems by Robert Lax on Level 1 of the Library. Lax is now regarded as a seminal figure in 20th century modernist poetry, and was hailed by Jack Kerouac as “one of the great original voices of our times … a Pilgrim in search of beautiful innocence”.
Check out our new Poetry Collection, featuring volumes by classic, cult and contemporary poets. You’ll find this great new resource on Level 1 of the Library.

We are currently trialing the database Art & Architecture Source. A&AS is an art research database that covers a broad range of subjects from fine, decorative and commercial art, to various areas of architecture and architectural design. It features full-text articles, indexing and abstracts for an array of journals, books and more. Access A&AS on-campus here and if you like what you see, let us know!
Rhino and People Size are now both available on any yellow-stickered computer in the Library.
The University of Glasgow is currently replacing all student and staff ID cards across its campuses. If you are a student or staff member at Glasgow School of Art and use a GU card to access services, facilities and collections at the University, these changes will affect you. Please note that your GSA campus card will not be affected.
Please retain your existing GU card as you may still require the old-style cards for a few weeks whilst hardware is upgraded. Progress updates will be posted within each building, with completion scheduled for June 2017.
All questions and queries concerning the card migration should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
