Technical guidance and advice
The Scottish Access Technical Information Network (SATIN) has recently launched a web service and is looking for new members to share knowledge and experience on technical information. Membership is free - to sign up visit www.satinonline.org and find out about events, join discussion groups about popular topics and share views. There is also the opportunity to forward technical information or information about events for inclusion on the site.
