Glasgow Caledonian University Library
Our award-winning library, the Saltire Centre, gives access to more than 270,000 books, 350 open-access PCs and a huge range of online resources including databases, ebooks, journals and more.
Your student card is your library card and you are automatically a member of the library when you register. Please note it can take 24-48 hours before your details are transferred to the library system. Only after this time will you be able to borrow from the library.
The library offers a variety of study spaces so that you can choose a place that best suits your needs, be it social and group study on the lower levels or individual and silent study on the upper levels.
The library is also home to the Archives and Special Collections, which hold rare and unique items from GCU’s past together with other collections of national importance.
