The Directory is a guide to the main named heritage collections of the University of Edinburgh and highlights some of the items the Library considers to be ‘iconic’ Some highlights include:

  • The University Coat of Arms, which was formally granted in 1789 after the city’s seals were deemed ‘inconvenient and unsuitable to the dignity of the University.
