SUNCAT is very pleased to announce the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service as our newest Contributing Library. It is a welcome addition to the 42 specialist libraries already in SUNCAT. The Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) is the specialist provider of safe high quality blood, tissues and cells products and services in Scotland.

We invited June MacLeod, Clinical and Scientific Information Manager at the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service Library, to write a few words about the library and its collections.

__________________________________________________________

In November 2008 the Edinburgh and South East Scotland Blood Transfusion Centre Library moved to a new site and was amalgamated with the Protein Fractionation Centre Library.  The library is now called the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service Library.

The library is a specialist library for transfusion medicine and consists of about 1000 archive books, some dating from the 1930s, pamphlets, staff publications, theses, American Association of Blood Banks information and Council of Europe documents.

The library is also a specialist library for protein fractionation, pharmaceutical manufacturing, plasma fractionation and engineering.  It consists of books, videos, British Standards, European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products publications, Food and Drug Administration publications, Government Acts, Health and Safety publications, Medicines Act leaflets and almost 1000 Research and Development Reports.

The library holds 99 journals and newsletters, 16 of which are current.  The manufacture of the pharmaceutical products ceased in December 2007 so the majority of the pharmaceutical, engineering and laboratory journals are archive closed runs.

___________________________________________________________

SUNCAT would like to thank June for writing this post. If you would like to write a post on your SUNCAT Contributing Library and its serials collections or would like to join SUNCAT please contact the EDINA Helpdesk at edina@ed.ac.uk.
