  About us


The Scottish Archive Network is a project whose partners are the National Archives of Scotland (NAS), the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), and the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU).

The project aims to revolutionise access to Scotland's archives by providing a single electronic catalogue to the holdings of more than 50 Scottish archives.

To preserve fragile historical records and improve their accessibility SCAN digitises records on a huge scale.

SCAN maintains the www.scan.org.uk, www.scottishhandwriting.com, and www.scottishdocuments.com websites, as well as hosting sites for several associations and bodies with interests in Scottish archives and history.
