The Andersonian Library

The Library covers all subjects taught at Strathclyde and offers over 550 networked computers with access to the internet, email, a wide range of software and databases and extensive Wi-Fi zones for laptops/tablets.

The Andersonian Library is also responsible for the University's historical archives, including special collections of rare books.
