The Web resource base of the Scottish Cultural Resources Access Network was launched by Sam Galbraith, Scottish Office Minister for Arts and Cultural Heritage, on Friday, July 25th 1997.

SCRAN is a Millennium project to build a networked multimedia resource base for the study, teaching and appreciation of history and material culture in Scotland.

At launch, the SCRAN resource base contained about 60,000 text records of objects from over 30 museums. A few hundred of these are attached to images. By the Millennium we plan this to have grown to 1.5 million text records and 100,000 multimedia objects, including movies, sound clips and Virtual Reality.

Please visit the website and choose "search SCRAN", try out the pilot user interface and let them know what you think!
