Welcome to our new blog. The University of Stirling celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017 and throughout the year we will be highlighting the contribution of the University Archives and Art Collection to the academic and cultural life of the campus. In this blog we will reflect on 50 years of collecting at the University of Stirling. In September 1967 the university opened for the first time with bare walls and empty storerooms. Today our art collection and Pathfoot Galleries are fully accredited by Museums Galleries Scotland and our archives attract researchers from around the world.
