Description

VISIT TO THE ROYAL ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY LIBRARY

The Royal Astronomical Society has a world-class collection in astronomy and geophysics that is far more comprehensive than the libraries of most universities and research institutions.

The Library receives some 300 current periodicals in astronomy and geophysics and has holdings of over 3,000 ceased titles. It contains more than 10,000 books from popular level to conference proceedings and in addition has the second-largest specialist collection of astronomical rare books in Britain (only the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh has more) with over 5,000 items published before 1851.

The RAS Library is thus a major resource of considerable value not just to the Society but also to the wider community of astronomers, geophysicists, and historians.

The Library is a private collection funded by and primarily serving the Fellows and other members of the Society.

This visit is Free.

The RAS Library is situated in Burlington House, on Piccadilly in central London. Burlington House is approximately half-way between Green Park and Piccadilly Circus underground stations.
