The collections span the centuries from early times to the digital age, housing millions of books, manuscripts, music and maps covering virtually every subject.
They chart the global and historical influence of Scots at home and abroad, while also recording and reflecting the ideas and cultures of the world. There is a regular programme of free exhibitions and displays throughout the year and a comprehensive events programme.
