Researchers are asked to look at the online catalogue (Surgicat) before contacting us to make an appointment. But the archivists are happy to help with any queries about the collections. If you cannot find what you are looking for on the catalogue, please email us.
We regularly exhibit reproductions of items from the archive collections in the display cases in the Royal College of Surgeons of England Library, and in the display cases on the ground floor by the Council Room and Committee Rooms 2 and 3.
Details of our current displays (focusing on Surgery in the First World War) will appear here shortly.
