Kate Forbes MSP[deasaich an tùs]

The National Library hosted a visit from the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch, Kate Forbes. Kate Forbes is a Gaelic speaker and came to find out more about the Library’s Gaelic-related work. The visit included a presentation on Wikimedia and Uicipeid. Three citations, using NLS digital collections, were added to the Uicipeid page for Inbhir Pheofharain (Dingwall), Ms Forbes’ hometown as part of the demonstration.
