We are delighted to announce the launch of the refreshed Statistical Accounts of Scotland online service.

As well as a new intuitive and streamlined interface, the redeveloped service features improved search, transcripts and metadata, making it easier to find relevant information within the accounts.

The new service offers:

  • Interactive historical maps
  • Contextual narratives that give more information on the accounts and their history
  • Parish and county pages listing all related sections within the volumes
  • High resolution images

Our subscription service has been enhanced with additional features designed to make it easy to work with the historical texts:

  • View your personal search history
  • Tag pages, sections and images with keywords
  • Annotate pages, sections and images with longer notes
  • Browse and filter personal tags and annotations

Over the next few weeks we will publish a series of blog posts giving more details on the new features: you can follow these on the service blog.
