Glasgow Museums hosts one of Scotland's most significant Islamic Art collections. Together with National Museums of Scotland, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum, Glasgow is one of four United Kingdom museums to have contributed items to the Discover Islamic Art Virtual Museum.
A computer terminal was inaugurated last week in the Islamic Art Gallery. It offers visitors instant access to the Virtual Museum, allowing contextualisation of the Islamic artefacts on display at Glasgow Museums.
Noorah Al-Gailani – Islamic Art Curator at Glasgow Museums and member of the curatorial board of Discover Islamic Art – commented: “The computer terminal is up and running and we're all very, very excited at the potential”.
