National Library of Scotland Introduces the “Data Foundry” with Datasets, Digitized Collections, Metadata, and More to Explore, Reuse, and Remix

From the National Library of Scotland Data Foundry Website:

Scotland’s thinkers, industries and culture have shaped the modern world. Our national collections span the breadth of human knowledge and we hold the world’s largest collection of Scottish published material.

The National Library of Scotland’s Digital Scholarship Service publishes data collections on the Data Foundry. Here, you can find the Library’s collections in machine-readable form: digitised collections (text and images); metadata collections; map data; and organisational data.

We update and add to our data collections on a regular basis.
