Wider access to two major web-based resources has become available to holders of a National Library of Scotland reader's ticket.
From any computer with an internet connection, readers who register for remote access can search and browse more than 39,000 American titles from the 17th and 18th centuries. 'Early American Imprints, 1639-1800' contains around 2.3 million digital pages, representing almost every published work in colonial North America and the early American republic. Anyone researching Scottish emigration and influence in North America will find this an important source of information.
With an NLS ticket, you can also now register for access to over one million entries and 5,000 images in the reference resource 'Xreferplus'. Included among the 100 high-quality reference works from the world's leading publishers are the current edition of 'Who's Who' plus the entire 'Who Was Who' archive from 1897.
These are the latest digital resources in the NLS collections to be opened up to users of the Library unable to visit us in person. (Please note, conditions apply.) The full list is displayed on our Electronic Resources Network page.
