Overview

This project was funded by the Wellcome Trust to establish a new archives catalogue and, for the first time, enable academics and the public to access online the College's extensive archival collections.

Background

The College has tens of thousands of manuscripts and letters within its collections which it has previously not had the resources to catalogue. As a result of this funded project these previously uncatalogued items have been identified and recorded in order to open up access to this material.

Outcomes

The online catalogue provides insight into a range of subjects, including

  • Developments in medical theory and practice from 1700 onwards, in one of the most important centres for medical education in the world
  • The patient experience, through records including patient case notes, drawings and medical illustrations
