Services for Researchers

The College possesses one of the finest historical medical collections, including many rare and unique items, recognised as a Designated Collection by Arts Council England. The collections are particularly strong in anatomy and surgery, with comparative anatomy and natural history also well represented.

The Royal College of Surgeons' Library in Lincoln's Inn Fields closed to visitors in May 2017 as part of a major refurbishment project due to be complete in 2020. During the redevelopment period, we will be working with partner institutions to provide managed access to our collections for study and research. Please see Using the RCS Library collections during the redevelopment for more information.

Fellows' obituaries are now available online at Plarr's Lives of the Fellows.
