Oxford Dictionary of National Biography - user site

May is apparently Local and Community History Month, and to mark the event the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has launched a new user site to explain how to get the best out of the resource. The guide, available at www.oup.com/oxforddnb/info/freeodnb/local, is in four sections:

1) Getting started: our selection
2) Finding people near you
3) Scotland and Wales
4) Gangs, gatherings, and groups

There's about 6000 entries for Scots - definitely worth a look!
