The Scottish Science Library - Its Role In National Provision

Author:

Abstract

The Scottish Science Library (SSL) is part of the National Library of Scotland (NLS), which has its roots in the Library of the Faculty of Advocates, founded in 1682 and transferred, except for its legal collections, to the nation in 1925. The NLS has therefore been a legal deposit library, in one form or another, since 1710, and is entitled to claim printed books, periodicals, newspapers, official publications, maps and music published in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Library also has a purchase grant with which it buys a selection of items not received via legal deposit, either because they are not published within the United Kingdom, or because they are in a format not covered by legal deposit legislation (eg CD-ROM, microform, etc).
