See, I'm Looking for this Old Scottish Song ...

A few years ago, the National Library of Scotland ran a pilot project to start indexing Scottish songs in early printed collections.  Sadly, the test project didn't carry on to finish indexing every Scottish song in their collections, but it's still a useful resource.  (Further funding would be required to see the whole thing through.)

We understand that the pilot database includes about 350 incipit titles and around 20,000 bibliographic title references. However, we don't know how many publications are completely listed in the pilot.
