A 57 million successor to the Queen Mother Library opened in September 2011 for the benefit of Aberdeen's students, of whom 14,000 are enrolled in 590 first-degree and 110 postgraduate courses. From the founding of King's College in 1495, the institution grew steadily and united with its rival, Marischal College, in 1860.
