The GDL is a collaborative venture based in the Centre for Digital Library Research whose aim is to create a wholly digital resource to support teaching, learning and research at all levels in Glasgow, bringing together material currently separated by ownership and physical location. Links include: Aspect - Access to Scottish Parliamentary Election Candidate Materials, 1999; Virtual Mitchell - images of Glasgow by area, street or subject, 1860-1980; Red Clydeside - a history of the labour movement in Glasgow, 1919-1932; Victorian Times - social, political and economic conditions, 1837-1901.
1837 - 1999
The Glasgow Digital Library was set up as part of the Research Support Libraries Programme, supplemented by funding from Scran and RLS for specific digitisation projects.
