ABSTRACT
In this article, the author explores the gap in the distribution of subscription library catalogs in Scotland from 1750 to 1820. The author aims to achieve his goal by concentrating on the functional role in facilitating access to the books of the Scottish Enlightenment. He explores their role as a venue for provincial participation in some of the most important elements of Georgian intellectual culture. He also discusses how provincial subscription libraries might have facilitated participation in a much broader cultural world.
