Jim I Scottish Song Index - Pilot Database (5) RE: Scottish Song Index - Pilot Database 20 Feb 07


A great resource but I do have one reservation. In their notes on the songs whilst they do give a bibliographic reference they do not seem to give any details on authorship. It can sometimes be difficult to ascertain authorship of some songs leading to the situation where some 'modern' songs are taken as 'trad' and I feel that by omitting this information the NLS is falling into the same trap.
