Scottish Independence?

In a few weeks the people of Scotland will vote on whether or not to seek independence; if they vote yes, it will end the union of England and Scotland which has existed since the early 1700s. The BBC has a helpful page here explaining some of the basics of the vote. There's a lot of information online of course at news spots like The Scotsman, The Telegraph and so forth. We have many books in our catalog about Scotland, and our article databases are a rich source of information too. All of that can be accessed via our home page. Shown here is a pro-independence rally last year. Notice the many blue flags with the white St. Andrews Cross, which is the Scottish flag, known as the "Saltire."
