The article offers information on the observations made on the Society of College, National and University Libraries' visit to the University of Glasgow Library and Glasgow Caledonian University Saltire Centre in Scotland in December 2006. A number of discussions were held prior to the actual visit with a focus on the principles for design and functionality of the buildings. It was reported that Glasgow University Library is 12 stories tall built in 1968 and suffers from a number of problems including a leakage in exterior cladding. Saltire Centre in Glasgow Caledonian University wielded a non-traditional outlook with a lot of flexibility in space usage and prominent use of wood in interior design were among the key features of the building.
