The Mitchell Library holds information from and about the Scottish Parliament and provides free access to the Parliament's web site. The library also has extensive holdings of British government publications including Papers and Bills from both Houses; Public and General Acts; Local and Personal Acts; Statutory Instruments; Parliamentary Debates and publications by Government departments and agencies.  

European Information

Our membership of the European Public Information Centres (EPIC) network and the Scottish European Resources Network (SERN) ensures online access to information throughout our libraries. For access to European information, use the links on this page to European Parliament, Council of Europe and European Union Online.


Law books are located on Level 4 and material relating to Scots Law is particularly well-represented.  All books acquired since 1970 are listed in the online catalogue. Law Reports, periodicals and official publications are listed separately. The collection includes The Laws of Scotland: Stair Memorial Encyclopedia, a multi-volume work providing general information on all aspects of Scottish Law, with relevant cases highlighted.  Although our staff are happy to help you find information they are not able to offer any legal advice.
