SLD Newsletter

for all our friends at home and abroad

Spring 2018

SLD's speciality is the Scots language and the aim of our Newsletter is to spread the word about some of our work, and the resources we provide for everyone interested in Scotland's linguistic culture.

Data Protection

As you are probably aware, new data protection regulations come into force soon. We will be contacting all our Friends next month, to explain how the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) affect our communications with you.
