Scottish Catholic Archives - limited access restored

From the website of the Scottish Catholic Archives (

Due to present circumstances, the Scottish Catholic Archives are temporarily closed. We are putting measures in place to provide limited access by prior confirmed appointment to bone fide researchers each Thursday, commencing Thursday 26th July 2012. It may be possible to arrange additional access on another day per week by appointment. Please check this website regularly for any updates. Should you have any specific enquiries at the present time and for appointments please email

There is no mention here though of the current plans to split the archive and to distribute its currently centralised resources across the country. A petition to implore the Catholic Church to change its mind on this has been up and running since Saturday 21st July and currently has 491 signatures. For more on this, the background to the current situation, and how to sign, please visit
