  • lovely library with lots of interesting books on any subject. Beautiful building and good coffee.
  • I'm a virtual business user of the library and have enjoyed the use of an online resource- D&B's Hoovers for the last couple years. I was very disappointed this week when I tried to access this resource and was informed that "due to budget cuts", this resource was not renewed. Hoovers enables a person to make company lists based on industry, location, size of company, etc.. This of course saves time when putting together a call list/sales or recruitment strategy. Such a shame.
  • lovely library with lots of interesting titles.
  • an interesting library is for short visit
  • The cafe in National Library of Scotland serves coffee, tea and mediocre snacks, also soup regularly served for lunch. I give the 4 star rating to the cafe for its regulars, an interesting mix of grumpy old men and knitting circles. The staff are also charming and helpful.
