Royal Holloway joins Research Libraries UK

Royal Holloway has been selected to join Research Libraries UK (RLUK), a national organisation which represents 38 of the leading and most significant research libraries in the UK and Ireland.

RLUK announced that Royal Holloway, University of London was one of only four applications to be selected for membership following a competitive process whereby the scope and impact of collections and services across Library, Archives and Art were considered. The University of Leicester, University of Reading and the University of Sussex were also invited to join the prestigious library network.

“We were very impressed with the quality of the applications we received from libraries wishing to join RLUK,” said John MacColl, Chair of RLUK. “All four of our new member libraries were able to demonstrate their commitment to the values of RLUK, and we are sure that they will improve our existing organisation. They will bring new insights to the challenges we face both institutional and collective, delivering innovative research support services, and refreshing our approaches to the enduring task of building and caring for collections.”

Director of Library Services, John Tuck, said he was thrilled to learn that Royal Holloway has become part of the RLUK community and is very much looking forward to working with colleagues from an exceptional group of institutions. He added that, “membership will enable Royal Holloway to make its collections and services more visible to the wider research community, to engage and contribute actively to strategic and collaborative developments and to benefit from close professional links across RLUK.”
