Thanks to the legal deposit privilege, we can request a copy of every newspaper published in Scotland. We also receive a copy of the main national titles published in the UK.
The collections include a representative sample of the UK regional press and a selection of overseas newspapers.
We hold some newspapers on microfilm to help reduce the handling of rare and fragile material.
