National Library of Scotland at Kelvin Hall,
The National Library of Scotland opens its doors in the west of Scotland today for the first time.
Housed in a refurbished Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, the new National Library premises extend the Library's reach out of its historic home in Edinburgh.
The development provides interactive opportunities for education, research, entertainment and inspiration.
Visitors will be able to enjoy 100 years of Scottish life on film and video held in the Moving Image Archive, with access to footage that is not available online.
They will also be able to explore the Library's vast digital collections — including e-books, maps, manuscripts, and reference works – from the earliest times to the present day. Much of this material can only be consulted on National Library premises.
'Kelvin Hall has been reborn and we are delighted to be an important part of this new leisure and cultural centre,' said National Librarian Dr John Scally.
