The Bibliography of Scottish Literature in Translation (BOSLIT) was a collaborative online resource hosted by the National Library of Scotland. From October 2018, that service has ceased.
We have retained BOSLIT as a dataset, and it is available in MARC XML format at https://data.nls.uk/.
We are supporting a project led by the University of Glasgow to explore the long-term future of the resource. You can follow the project on the 'BOSLIT – The Blog' website.
Background to BOSLIT
With the assistance of the Scottish Arts Council, BOSLIT was set up in 1994 by the University of Edinburgh and the National Library of Scotland.
It identified and created records for translations of Scottish literary works and brought them online together in a central database.
The BOSLIT database was administered jointly the university and the Library. Work was overseen by an advisory committee, comprising academics, writers, poets, librarians, literature administrators, and teachers from different areas of Scotland.
