Am Baile - Highland History & Culture
"Am Baile was founded by a consortium led by The Highland Council. Together with our partners Taigh Chearsabhagh Trust and West Highland Animation we are creating a digital archive of the history and culture of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The site was launched in May 2003 and is still growing. It offers learning opportunities for users of all age groups, abilities and backgrounds by drawing together unique material which until now was difficult to access and presenting it in a user-friendly and often exciting way. Am Baile includes photographs, rare books and documents from archives, libraries, museums and private collections, contemporary art, films, interactive games and comics." A good starting point for historians is the Media Types section which gives an overview of the different types of digitised materials that are available.
