open again

The Wellcome Library in London UK

On Monday 16 April, the Wellcome Library opened once more to the public at 183 Euston Road after significant efurbishment.

The library covers the history and progress of medicine and our collections of books, manuscripts, archives, films and pictures now occupy two floors.
There are improved facilities, more reader spaces and expanded access to more than 2.5 million items spanning 3000 years and covering a vast range of cultures and subjects

The Wellcome Library is part of Wellcome Collection, an exciting new
cultural destination exploring health and wellbeing through medicine, life
and art, which opens in full on 21 June 2007. As well as the Library, the
building will house three exhibition galleries, a public events space, a
café, a bookshop, a conference centre and a club.
