Main Library Construction Images

Almost complete construction of the main library

Did you know that The University of Edinburgh’s Main Library was deliberately designed to look like a bookcase? Opened in 1967 this example of brutalist architecture is a bit of a marmite building but we love it!

A collection of images showing the construction of the Library have been made available on the Collections image sharing site under a CC BY licence.
