The Glasgow School of Art Archives and Collections

You all will have seen in the news the sad events of Friday 23rd May where a fire broke out in the Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh Building. Sadly the iconic Mackintosh Library was lost during this fire.

The archives and collections have also suffered some damage, however the bulk of our holdings are fine and have been removed from the site for an assessment of their condition. We would once again like to thank everyone who has helped and continues to offer their help during this process. The offers of support we have received has been truly overwhelming and has made this process much easier to bear. Thank you.

Unfortunately, the Archives and Collections will be closed for the foreseeable future. As soon as we have more news we will provide an update here.

Once again, thank you to all those who have helped and offered their assistance.

  1. Hope the damage to your holdings was not too great and that you are open again as soon as you are practically able. Most importantly, no-one was hurt.
