The Go-Digital fund supports Scottish-based book publishers in bringing their books to a new digital audience. It's administered by Publishing Scotland with the help of funding from Creative Scotland. The total sum of £8,000 is spread over two funding rounds annually.

The fund helps publishers in three areas:
(a) accessing training or consultancy on digital matters;
(b) attending digital events in the UK and overseas; and
(c) marketing their digital books and content.
Publishers can claim costs up to a maximum of £1,000 per company.
