The Scottish Distributed Digital Library

I’ve just come across the Scottish Distributed Digital Library: a collection of links to digitised sounds, images and texts with Scottish themes on the internet.

The collection includes books, photographs, paintings, drawings and websites covering such diverse subjects as

  • Aberdeen-built ships
  • Ayrshire working lives photographs
  • Hand drawn maps of Cawdor parish dating from 1782
  • The Dictionary of Scottish Architects
  • Architectural plans and drawings
  • Photographs of Glasgow people and places
  • More maps than you can shake a stick at

and much much more!

Go and have a look at http://scone.strath.ac.uk/sddl/index.cfm – I’m sure you’ll find something relevant to your own family history.
