Welcome to the Archives Catalogue

The archives catalogue of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh contains descriptions of the records of the College’s own history, archive collections deposited in the College (such as the papers of William Cullen and John Pringle), records of the College’s illustration and photograph collections and medical objects collection.

The College’s medical library has a separate catalogue. The library, which is open to all, contains over 60,000 printed monographs. The subject areas covered include medicine, botany, science, alchemy and travel.

Digital copies of certain areas of the collections are increasingly being made available online, so far the digitised collections are the papers of William Cullen and over 10,000 of the College’s nineteenth century printed books.

The library and archives are open to readers by appointment from 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Please contact us to arrange your visit.
