Hannah Mateer, Collections Lifecycle Manager at University of Edinburgh Main Library has sent us an update on their OP collection. Hahhah said:
The University of Edinburgh Library is working with the National Library of Scotland to create a unified, accessible collection of UK Parliamentary Papers within the city of Edinburgh, based at the National Library. Requests for UK Parliamentary Papers should be made to the National Library of Scotland.
The full entry can be viewed here.
Thanks for the update Hannah.
Sharon Nangle, Academic Liaison Librarian at the University of St Andrews Library, has informed us of a change in location for their OP materials:
Some of our collection is now held off-site in stores. Items in stores can be retrieved on request, please contact us prior to visiting.
You can view St Andrews’ full entry here. Thanks for the update Sharon.
Last call to check and update the SWOP Directory of Official Publications in Scotland before the AGM.
Many thanks to those who have already replied. Your entries are up-to-date and shiny!
Could everyone else please take a moment to look at the entry for your organisation and let me know if anything needs changed or amended? Bear in mind your entry might be in the ‘archived’ section at the bottom of the main list. It would be especially good to get those ones updated this year.
Thanks in advance, and best wishes

I’d like to welcome another organisation to the SWOP Directory, Marine Scotland Science.
Library and Information Manager, Helen McGregor describes her collection as follows:
Copies of Marine Scotland Science publications, and copies of Fisheries Research Services and Fishery Board for Scotland publications (previous names of Marine Scotland Science). These include sea fisheries statistics, Marine Research, Fishery Bulletin and annual reports of the Fishery Board of Scotland.
It also includes copies of all reports published by the Marine or Freshwater Fisheries Laboratories.
Publications from other bodies are collected where there is relevance to MSS’s work. The collection is held at the Marine Laboratory in Aberdeen, with publications relating to freshwater held at the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory near Pitlochry
Welcome to the SWOP Directory!
I’d like to draw your attention to a new entry in the SWOP Directory as well as a (sort of) new SWOP member.
Particular strengths of the Supreme Courts Library are:
Historic collection of official publications and reports relating to the Scottish civil and criminal justice system
If you don’t know her already, Supreme Courts Librarian Jennifer Findlay will be attending our up-coming AGM, so you can meet her then.
Welcome to SWOP Jenny and the Supreme Courts Library!
It’s time again to check and update our unique and fabulous Directory of Official Publications in Scotland.
May I request that everyone have a look at the entry for their own organisation and let me know if anything needs to be changed or amended? That would be fantastically helpful.
Thanks in advance.
The SWOP Directory of Official Publications in Scotland has been updated for 2015!
This collection of OP information is unique to SWOP and we encourage you to make use of it.
If your organization’s entry has not been updated this year, please contact me with details of the required changes.
