Glasgow Women’s Library

glasgow women's library Glasgow Women’s Library is an information hub housing a lending library, archive collections and contemporary and historical artefacts relating to women’s lives, histories and achievements. In 2008 a new potential partnership arose through the shared aims of GWL and Women’s History Scotland to begin to “map” the resources and in particular archives on women in Scotland – there was a substantial challenge for GWL to assess the feasibility of such a mapping project and piloting it, so it was decided that two students would undertake a feasibility study into this project and gauge whether or not such a resource would be widely used. The students’ findings can be accessed here – FAS Report: Glasgow Women’s Library
