LIBRARY SERVICES: YOU SAID, WE DID 2021
Thank you to all our students for providing feedback on library collections and services in our 2021 Annual Survey. We have created a padlet board that picks out the most salient themes, and how we are working to address them.

Our online orientation for academic session 2020/21 is now live! Find out how to use Canvas and how to find and access the Library’s digital resources (including e-journals and e-books). You can return to the orientation at any point during your studies, to refresh your knowledge or update your skills.
Zinesters have always been proactive in finding new ways to distribute their work from handing them out at gigs, swapping them at zinefests or creating online zines that readers can print off and make a physical copy of for themselves. Since we are still in lockdown that is the strategy we are using.
As this open call coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week, we particularly welcome zines that focus on mental health in some form. But it can be on any topic you like.
We know your resources may be scarce, so here is a good video from Austin Kleon on how to make a zine made from a single sheet of A4 paper: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab4O9SWNl9g
Create your zine and submit it to us as a PDF. When this is all over, we will print it and add to our excellent zine library. We will also feature a selection of submitted zines on our website.
Send your submission with the subject line “Zine Open Call” to: email@example.com
Stay well and keep making. We look forward to seeing your creations!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
