The Library needs 'friends'

Posted by Karen Myers, Curator, on November 30, 2022

The College has a most fantastic History of Medicine Library, housing one of the best collections of Australian and New Zealand History of Medicine material (there are books, pamphlets, archives and artefacts). Some of you may already be familiar with the collection from past research.

The College is now planning a new initiative - Friends of the History of Medicine Library of the RACP. We are inviting our own Fellows and trainees to be part of this new group, but in order to ensure that we maintain the highest possible standards of interest and research we are specifically inviting others who share a passion for the History of Medicine in Australia and New Zealand to become Friends. Through an annual program of exhibitions, functions, seminars and lectures we hope that the fine collection of the College will find a greater audience who appreciate its value and will preserve the collection for future generations.

Now that we are all so familiar with on-line meeting platforms, ‘Friends’ from all states, territories and ‘across the ditch’ can join together.

The Library, Heritage and Cultural Collections Committee invites all members to register their interest here
