New books in the library

Written by on July 29, 2013

The college library houses over 30,000 volumes of work covering all aspects of medicine, surgery, dentistry and health. The latest textbooks and revision guides sit alongside key medical texts dating from the 15th century to the present day. We also house a large collection of books dealing with the history of medicine and, thanks to the generous support of the Baillie’s Institution, the library is building up a comprehensive collection of books relating to the history of Glasgow and Scotland.

We are continually adding to our collections and below are a selection of some of the titles acquired by the library this month.
