The Society holds an extensive non-legal collection. This includes the Scottish collection, comprising works published in or about Scotland and Scottish life, which is still being added to today. There are a number of specialist collections such as the Roughhead Collection, a collection of books on murders in Britain, gifted by the late William Roughhead, author of the British Notable Trials series.
