Online Resources from Orkney Library & Archive


As we continue to work and study from home, we mustn’t forget the amazing resource that most of us can access without leaving the house – the Orkney Library & Archive’s online resources. Most of these resources do require you to have an Orkney Library membership. Currently, if you were to email them on they will set up membership for you, but will require a signature at a later date.


This document has been put together to introduce you to their resources: Orkney Library & Archive –  Online Resources & Oxford Reference.

If you are interested in local history, then the Archive page is also worth a look. They also have an archive blog, Get Dusty.

eBooks & eAudiobooks

With an Orkney Library membership, you can access eBooks and eAudiobooks for free via BorrowBox, and stream or download music via Freegal. Again, you will need a library membership to access these.

Orkney Talking Newspaper is also available via the website.
