  Digital Archive - contents
Between 1999 and 2003 The Scottish Archive Network project experimented with ways of making digital and electronic versions of historical records available online. The records were some of the most common types of historical records held in Scottish archives. The results of these experiments can be seen in various parts of the site, including the Virtual Vault and Exhibitions. The list below is a fairly comprehensive guide to what is available in the site.
