Scotland Online Catalogue Project

Established in 1999, the Scottish Archive Network (SCAN) offers online access to collection-level descriptions of archives held by 52 partner organisations. There are currently c.59,000 catalogue entries of which c.28,000 are at fonds (collection) level and c18,500 at file or item level. To reap the full educational, cultural and social benefits of archives, users must be able to access more item-level descriptions. 

The Scotland Online project aims to provide archives across Scotland with an interactive online cataloguing portal with detailed searchable information about holdings. The provision of a dynamic online catalogue promises to be of enormous benefit to all current and potential users of archives in Scotland and, indeed, world-wide.
