Each week we bring out items from our rich and varied collections which reflect world events, social conditions, technological advancements and cultural change across the globe. Our vast collections cover books, photographs, journals and historical documents spanning centuries. Join us for a 15 minute lunchtime opportunity to see and talk to staff about our collections!
Come along and see some of our collections celebrating Scottish inventors and their creations.
Our display will include material on:
John Logie Baird – television
Alexander Graham Bell – telephone
Alexander Fleming – penicillin
John Loudon Macadam – roads
James Watt – improvements in steam engines
This and other material on science and technology is available on Level 4 of The Mitchell Library.
