is currently updating its files on the holdings of archives and
other institutions in Scotland, previously known as Datasheet
6. This listed (at collection level) the holdings of
over 40 archives, libraries, museums, art galleries and other institutions
in Scotland, but by 1995 had become seriously out of date. As information
at collection level is now being undertaken by the Scottish
Archive Network (SCAN) for over 50 archives and special collections
libraries, the Association will not update the Datasheet 6
entries relating to these but concentrate on libraries, museums
and other institutions who hold manuscript records, but are not
covered by SCAN. The title, Datasheet 6, has been replaced
by the title Archival Summaries. Additional entries will
be added from time to time and an online database is in preparation.
Updates and additions in printed form are supplied to Association
members via the Association's Newsletter.
