  • Eighteenth-Century borrowing from the University of Glasgow - Histories of eighteenth-century book use have often relied on anecdotal accounts produced principally by elite auditors. This is not because other kinds of data have not survived, but because evidence is often immured in fragile, complex and inaccessible – but potentially immensely valuable – manuscript sources. Eighteenth-Century Borrowing at the University of Glasgow contributes to realising the potential of such sources by making openly available high-quality digital materials and rich, searchable data relating to book borrowings in the mid eighteenth century. Archival library records at Glasgow are patchy, but for the eighteenth century, six registers detailing student borrowings and professorial loans have survived. This site allows users to work with images and data from the three registers that record student borrowings. These cover the period between March 1757 and January 1771.
