The Library

Whether you are a Senior Fellow, busy practitioner, examination candidate, or student, the College Library has a wide range of resources and services that can help to support your research, learning and CPD.


What motivates me? Being involved in cutting edge research that brings science and artisan skills closer together for the benefit of the patients and fellow professionals.
