National Library of Scotland - digital online plans

Post by stewart » Mon Sep 21, 2015 10:27 am

From BBC Scotland website today - maybe some useful sporting items to be included ?


Millions of historic documents to go digital -

The National Library of Scotland has announced it will make millions of items - ranging from Robert Burns manuscripts to memorabilia from the independence referendum - available online.

The plans involve putting a third of the library's collection of 24 million items on the internet over the next 10 years, including rare books, maps, sound archives and thousands of films on life in Scotland.

The library said its long-term aim was to make as much material digitally available as possible, subject to restrictions around copyright or conditions set by publishers.

Thanks for posting that Stewart. Maybe we should push to get Historical football books in digital format on the nls website, although Andy Mitchell has made good progress with this already on his website!

Unfortunately, I think our subject matter will not be high on their agenda. For some reason Britain's national sport gets left behind in these sorts of projects! Snobbery?
