Internet Archive continues to add NLS materials

The National Library of Scotland section of the Internet Archive is continuing to add material at a rate of knots, with some 915 directories now available on the suite (at least), some 200 more available than on the NLS's own website. Latest additions include Inverness and burgh directories up to 1931, directories for Ayrshire up to 1924, Post Office directories for Edinburgh and Leith, and also for Dundee, up to 1931, and considerably more. Other holdings include British army, navy and air force lists from the world wars, over 1900 books written in Gaelic, compiled genealogies, and a range of other materials, all freely available.
