The Special Collections Division manages a regularly updated blog. Its posts are authored by the curators, cataloguers and staff of the Division who work with these University treasures on a daily basis.

All of the blogs produced by Library staff and news about the Library can be found in one place on our Library blog. You can read about new resources, Open Access, Digital Humanities, about the Library spaces and services and much more.


Echoes from the Vault

Echoes from the Vault

Echoes from the Vault was launched in June 2011 as the blog of the Rare Books Cataloguer, providing an outlet for the many discoveries being made during retrospective cataloguing projects. In 2012, the blog was rebranded as the official blog for the Special Collection of the University of St Andrews Library. Here you can find posts about unique or exciting finds amongst the vaults in our day-to-day work, bringing to light voices that have remained quiet for many years. This blog also features news and events happening within the Special Collections Division and the University Library.
