National Library of Scotland annual review 2008-09

The National Library of Scotland has published its annual review online at www.nls.uk/about/publications/annualreview/2008-2009/index.html.

Included in the report is a two minute video interview with Gill Hamilton about the facility's new online search system (
http://digital.nls.uk) and with Annette Hagan and Lee Hibbard, who outline their collaboration with the Internet Archive Digital project, including a demonstration on the digitisation of several Gaelic holdings. A summary of various online social networking facilities is also available at www.nls.uk/about/social-networking/index.html. Other discussions include NLS projects that I've never heard of, such as the Medical History of British India site at www.nls.uk/indiapapers.

Well worth reading!
