Last few places left: Tour of the RUSI Library of Military History

Visit to the Royal United Services Institute Library on Tuesday 14th October 2014,  2.00pm – 3.30pm. This visit is organised jointly on behalf of CILIP Information Services Group (London and South East sections) and CILIP Local Studies Group South.

Located in the heart of Whitehall, and founded in 1831 by the Duke of Wellington, RUSI is the UK’s forum for national and international defence and security.  The library, correctly titled the RUSI Library of Military History, has supported members and staff’s information needs for over 180 years. Over this time it has built up a collection of over 30,000 volumes on the military arts and sciences, with excellent collections covering conflicts from the Napoleonic Wars to our current operations in Afghanistan, with extensive collection of materials on the First World War.

Don’t miss this opportunity to visit this unique repository of books on military history housed in a breath-taking Victorian library.

This visit is free.
