The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is renowned for its research, postgraduate studies and continuing education in public and global health.
Founded in 1899, today staff, students and alumni work in government, academia, international agencies and health services across the world.
Their outstanding, diverse and committed staff make an impact where it is most needed – deploying research in real time in response to crises, developing innovative programmes for major health threats, or training the next generations of public and global health leaders and researchers.
The primary role of the Library & Archives Service (LAS) is to support the School in its mission to improve health and health equity in the UK and worldwide. The Library & Archives Service seeks to provide excellent information-related services, resources and support to the School’s staff and students, and also welcomes external researchers and visitors who wish to consult its specialist collections.
It facilitates access to a comprehensive collection of printed and electronic material in the fields of public and global health, and provides support for open access publishing within the School. The archives of the School date from the mid-nineteenth century and consist of correspondence and personal papers of scientific, medical and global health professionals. The service also provides a records management service and support for research data management within the School.
This visit is a great opportunity to see the LSHTM LAS team in action as well as see some of the interesting materials from the archive.
