New Directory entry: Supreme Courts Library

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.

SWOP Directory highlight: Aberdeen City Council, Library and Information Services

ûWhen she was updating their SWOP Directory entry, Ruth Gould, Information Librarian noted a handy OP service Aberdeen Library and Information Services provides for their users.

They’ve gathered links to a selection of official websites via an Information Web Links page to help people find official information for free online. Ruth says “The Livebinder folders that have been created to group the websites can be shared from anyone’s website”.

Thanks for that information Ruth
