Site Developments

Site Redesign (November 2003 - February 2004)

SCAN's website is in the course of a redesign. You should find that navigation and download times are greatly improved. You may also come across pages awaiting text and formatting. Please be patient. Our small team is working steadily through the site to update and improve the key areas.

Online Catalogue (October 2003 - April 2004)

The catalogues to more than 20,000 collections of historical records in 52 Scottish archives are in the course of being added to the Online Catalogue.

Digital Archive (November 2003 - April 2004)

Images of historical records from various archives are being included in the Digital Archive, which will supercede the Virtual Vault and Exhibitions in making high quality digital versions of Scottish records accessible online.
