Scottish Records Association

Welcome to the website of the Scottish Records Association (SRA).

The SRA was founded in 1977 and is concerned with the preservation and use of historical records in Scotland. It provides a forum for users, owners and custodians of records to discuss matters relating to the records, their custody and conservation and research. 

Find out about the SRA's annual conference, check out the contents of Scottish Archives, the journal, and read archived editions of Retour, the newsletter.

You can access summary lists of the historical records held by libraries, museums, galleries and other institutions in Scotland in the Archival Summaries.

Support the work of the SRA, be first to hear about visits and the conference, and receive Scottish Archives and Retour on a regular basis by becoming a member.

The SRA is a registered Scottish charity no. SC008896.
