We will be trialing four databases from now until December 31:
- Royal College of Physicians: Founded in 1518 by a Royal Charter from King Henry VIII, the Royal College of Physicians of London is a professional membership body for physicians, with 34,000 members and fellows across the globe. It is the leading body for physicians in the United Kingdom and internationally, and the oldest medical college in England.
- New York Academy of Sciences: Among the oldest scientific organizations in the United States, it has become an enduring cultural institution in New York, and one of the most significant organizations in the global scientific community.
- Royal Anthropological Institute : The Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland (RAI) was founded in 1871, with roots dating back to 1837. Today, it is the world’s longest-established scholarly association dedicated to the furtherance of anthropology, in its broadest and most inclusive sense.
- Royal Geographical Society: The collection includes materials from the society’s library, as well as its extensive archival and map collection. Hundreds of thousands of manuscript maps are complemented by manuscript material, field notes, correspondence, drawings, pamphlets, atlases, gazetteers, and a range of other published and unpublished material.
