History - One in a million

27th February 2009 at 00:00

A vast online collection of resources relating to Scottish heritage and culture is getting more than a million hits a day.

Scran, which hosts 360,000 images, movies and sounds from museums, galleries, archives and the media, was set up in 1996. Recent additions include collections from the Scottish Transport Museum Trust, the Robert Gordon University, the British Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

More than 4,000 teachers have subscribed and it is used by more than 4,000 schools, libraries, colleges and universities across the country. It reached the million-hits-a-day milestone at the turn of the year. The site, run by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, aims to keep the Scottish diaspora in touch with its roots and promote Scotland to tourists.
