Created by Carol Stewart, March 2015.
The Scottish Election Ephemera collection was developed in collaboration with the Centre for Digital Library Research at the University of Strathclyde to house the election material which was collected and digitised as part of the "ASPECT":http://gdl.cdlr.strath.ac.uk/aspect/ project during the 1999 Scottish Parliament election. Since then we have continued to collect material for all elections taking place in Scotland in order to provide a rich research resource for students and researchers.
Further accruals are expected following each election taking place in Scotland.
