The Scottish Book Trade Archive Inventory (SBTAI)
The Centre for the History of the Book at the University of Edinburgh announces the launch of The Scottish Book Trade Archive Inventory (SBTAI). The SBTAI provides a fully searchable index of manuscript papers held in Scotland relating to printers, publishers, and papermakers. To date, the SBTAI covers the nineteenth century and funding is presently being sought to extend these records and to add material for the seventeenth, eighteenth, and twentieth centuries. The first phase of the project pilot was completed in 2006 with support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.You can navigate to the SBTAI from the Centre for the History of the Book website by following the links from the news item on the right hand side of the page.
