News Our remedial building works are now finished. We are in the process of returning stock from storage. This will take several weeks to complete, but as areas of stock become available we shall update our information.

Currently we do not have access to resources including Edinburgh literary material, Electoral Registers pre-1985 and Valuation Rolls. Our older Scottish material is also unavailable.

We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused. Please speak to staff to see if alternatives can be arranged.
