The National Library of Scotland’s Data Foundry was launched in September 2019 as the Library’s data-delivery platform, and part of the Library’s Digital Scholarship Service. The Data Foundry provides Library collections in machine-readable form: digitised collections (text and images); metadata collections; map data; and organisational data. The Library updates and adds to these collections on a regular basis.
