Scotsman Digital Archive relaunched

The public subscription version of the Scotsman Digital Archive (www.archive.scotsman.com) is now back up and running, but has been radically redesigned to work in a similar way to the British Newspaper Archive site. Thanks to Don001 in Dunedin, New Zealand for the news, posted as a comment on a previous post from November 18th at http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/scotsman-digital-archive-public-site.html, which I thought was worth bringing to wider circulation:

It's up and running again but administered by the British Newspaper Archive as a stand-alone site. I had a problem with Google Chrome not showing the zoom, scrolling and grab tools and they can't find anything wrong but Google Product Forums indicates that Google Chrome does have a problem in this general area. The technical "fix" sounds complicated. Anyone else experience this? Internet Explorer works fine.

For those living in Scotland, please do read the original post to see how to get FREE access to this archive, via the National Library of Scotland's licensed digital collections.

(With thanks to Don001)
