Glasgow Caledonian University | Archive Centre

About this Organisation

Glasgow Caledonian University was established in 1993; a merger of Glasgow Polytechnic and the Queen's College, Glasgow.

The subject strengths of our archives and collections are: Scottish left wing politics, trades unions, campaign and pressure groups; Scottish social work, social policy and child welfare; Scottish public health; Scottish social enterprise; and our contribution to the development of Scottish higher education from the late 19th century onward. We house the records of our University and its founding institutions (dating back to 1875 and the formation of the Glasgow School of Cookery). There is an overriding theme of Scottish social history and social justice present in our archives and collections.

The Archive Centre is open to everyone and access to the records is free.
