Using Archives

​Welcome to the City Archives, where you can enjoy the wonderful documentary heritage of Glasgow and the west of Scotland over eight centuries.

We are responsible for the archives entrusted to our care and users play a vital role in helping us to safeguard our archival heritage for future users.
