Privacy & Cookies

This site is designed to enable you to browse and search GSA Archive and Collections materials. You do not need to log in or supply any personally identifying information in order to use it.

Please read the Archives & Collections Privacy Notice in the Policies & Guides area of this site for more information about how we manage data about you. 


Like most modern websites, we do set several ‘cookies‘ in order to display some types of content, and to monitor how the site is used so that we can continue to improve it. A cookie is a very small text file that the website stores on your computer via your web browser. Cookies are completely passive (i.e. not programmes) usually containing strings of data, and are used by the site each time you return.

If you do not want to have cookies stored on your computer or device, then please set your browser to refuse them. Please note that if you do, then some site features may not work properly.


We do track this site’s use with Google Analytics. We collect non-personal information about which pages you view, how you navigate the site and other performance-related data. All data collected by Google Analytics is stored and processed by Google, according to the Google Ads Data Processing Terms.

None of the information gathered through the use of cookies or Google Analytics is used for any purpose other than the ones described above. For more information, please refer to The Glasgow School of Art’s Data Protection Policies.

Please also note that the Archives and Collections online catalogue does display a ‘login‘ button, but this is only for staff use.
