Custodial History

The Muirhead Collection of books was originally housed in The Muirhead common room, a separate recreational space for female students at the University. It was dispersed into main library stock in 1959 when the students union moved to the John Street building. The collection was extracted from the main library in the 1970s and housed in Special Collections as the Muirhead Collection.
