eResources

National Library of Scotland registration gives you free access to an extensive range of eResources.

All of these resources are available in our George IV Bridge Building and at Kelvin Hall. If your main address is in Scotland you can access many of them from any computer outwith the National Library, subject to the publishers' licensing terms and conditions. You can also use a number of open access resources without registering. How to register and activate your registration.
