See, share and contribute to Library material online

You will find National Library of Scotland material in various ways on the web — and not only on our own sites.

Connect on social networks

We are active on three of the popular social networking sites:

  • Facebook
    We load video clips and images and images to the National Library of Scotland on Facebook. Once registered, our Facebook friends can also keep up with Library news and events.
  • Twitter logo
    Frequent tweets about our events and exhibitions, and news about all sorts of things we think you might be interested in, at the Library and occasionally elsewhere. Keep up to date — read Library tweets.
  • YouTube logo
    Watch short video clips from our moving image collection on YouTube. To access them, search for 'National Library of Scotland'. To get from there to our our YouTube channel, follow the link to 'NLofScotland'.

Library blog

The National Library of Scotland blog brings you news and views about our collections and our work from curators, subject experts and guest bloggers. We post every Wednesday, with additional posts now and then.

Email the Web Editor if you have any suggestions about the blog or if you think there are topics we should be blogging about.
