Services available to visitors to the National Library of Scotland and to remote users include:

Enquiry service

We offer a basic free scientific enquiry service. We welcome enquiries by phone, fax and email, so please contact us to see if we can help with your query. Typical enquiries include checking definitions and translations — e.g. 'What is French for yellow fish?' — checking biographical details on scientists, and checking journal references.
