This is a beautiful building which has a bit of history itself but the shelves and modern media areas are just stacked with all you could ever wish for. There is a also a lovely café which serves good food at reasonable prices. Situated at Charing Cross, it is just on the western edge of the city centre and only... More

I went to look up ancestry items and found it to be very well equipped for this . The building itself is very interesting and you can find out a lot about it also.

Drove from Dundee yesterday to hear James Robertson speak at the Mitchell library. A last minute room change meant two flights of stairs, which due to mobility access I could not manage. Was told to wait and someone would take me up in a staff lift. No one came. Another staff member agreed to take me and after walking a... More

While visiting the Family History section where the staff were so helpful, I decided to drop into the Cafe on my way out only to find surly staff, empty shelves and this was only mid day! Standard not as good as the rest of the Mitchell Library

Previously I had always gone to Edinburgh so this was great to discover I could access all the same records closer to home.Staff were very helpful and cafeteria on the ground floor was very good. I would definitely go back. Only bugbear is the short opening hours . Same... More

An iconic Glasgow building, I had always wanted to pay a visit but never got round to it until last week when my training course finished early. I wanted to research "The Ibrox Disaster" and was certainly provided with substantial archive material by the very helpful staff. I'll need to return, perhaps more than once to complete my research. It... More
