The Wellcome Library

The library is the building in the left of the photo. Their web site let us know that
Part of Wellcome Collection, a major new £30 million public venue developed by the Wellcome Trust, the Library has over 750 000 books and journals, an extensive range of manuscripts, archives and films, and more than 250 000 pictures. We are one of the world's major resources for the study of medical history and we also provide access to a growing collection of contemporary biomedical information resources relating to consumer health, popular science, biomedical ethics and the public understanding of science. ... In 2005 the Wellcome Library was awarded 'Designated' status by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council. This means that its collections have been recognised as being outstanding as an historical, evidential and cultural resource of national and international importance in the field of the history of medicine.
The Wellcome Library is located on Euston Road.
