Welcome to the Archives Catalogue

The archives catalogue of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh contains descriptions of the College’s archive collection, archive collections deposited in the College (such as the papers of William Cullen and John Pringle), records of the College’s photograph collection, the sculpture’s we hold, and our oil paintings.

The College’s world renowned medical library has a separate catalogue. The library, which is open to all, contains over 50,000 printed monographs: twenty two titles were published before 1500 and around 700 titles were published before 1600. 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 a project to digitise 19th century books.

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