Special Collections: Help Rebuild Our Collections

Children’s smocks by Jessie Newbery in Moderne Stickereien II (1906), purchased with funds kindly donated by NADFAS Scotland (GSA Library, Special Collections)

On the 23rd of May 2014, a fire in the Mackintosh Building of the Glasgow School of Art caused us to lose our much loved Mackintosh Library. We have been touched by the many offers of donations we have received following the loss, and we continue to receive many offers of donations from individuals and institutions, for which we are very grateful. The rebuilding of the collections lost in the Mackintosh Library fire will take many years. We intend to pursue a targeted rebuild, tightly aligned to both the illustrious history and future direction of the Glasgow School of Art.

At this time, we are seeking very specific titles that hold particular relevance to our history, our alumni, and our learning, teaching and research activities. Our Librarians have compiled a Wants List, which is regularly updated. If you hold any of the titles below and would like to donate them to the Library, then do contact us.
