We are happy to announce our new exhibition in the library “Astronomy in the University of Glasgow”.
Alexander Wilson became the first Regius Chair of Astronomy in the University of Glasgow in 1760. Since then the Department of Astronomy has a long and distinguished history.
The exhibition in Am Fosglan (on level 2 of the main library) describes this history, and the various Observatories associated with the department. Historic and current materials from the University Library collections are also represented.
We welcome all visitors to view this fascinating poster exhibition during normal library opening hours.
