Scottish Parliament records (1235 - 1707) go online

A major project by St. Andrews University comes to fruition today, with the records of the original Scottish parliament going online at www.rps.ac.uk

From the site's intro:

The culmination of over ten years’ work by researchers from the Scottish Parliament Project based in the School of History at the University of St Andrews, the new edition seeks to make this key historical source freely available to all in a technologically advanced and user-friendly format.

The inclusion of new parliaments and conventions of estates, committee records, parliamentary minutes and additional material makes the online edition the most comprehensive record of Scottish parliamentary proceedings ever available.
