Interior of the Adam Smith Library in the University of Glasgow's Adam Smith Building, 1973.
In addition to its main Library the University has a number of smaller class or departmental libraries. The Adam Smith is located on the first floor of the Adam Smith Building, Bute Gardens, Hillhead. It is primarily a library for undergraduates studying Social Sciences or Psychology.
The library, like the building, is named for Adam Smith (1723-1790), former student and the Professor of Moral Philosophy (1752-1764) at the University and the author of An Enquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1766).
