A new images resource offers online access to printed, written and illustrative material from National Library of Scotland collections.

In the NLS Digital Archive are thousands of images of complete books, manuscripts, maps, photographs and drawings. Still at an early stage of development, the resource features a small selection of image groups such as:

  • Official photographs from the First World War
  • Robert Burns's 'Poems chiefly in the Scottish dialect'
  • Soviet posters, 1919-1930.

We will be adding more images during the year. The Digital Archive is destined to become a significant image source for NLS site visitors. In the meantime people can use a feedback form to let us know what they think of it so far.
