COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - the RCN Library and Archive Service is currently online only 

With the uncertainty around COVID at the present time the RCN has made the difficult decision not to re-open the library spaces until 2021. We will continue to offer enhanced services including postal loans and scan and send and we are fully available online 24/7 as we have been throughout the COVID  pandemic.

For the latest Library and COVID-19 information please visit our keeping up to date page.

Library and Archive Service staff are available email, webchat and telephone during our opening hours (Monday-Friday 9am-7pm) (Saturday 9am-5pm).

Our remote training sessions are available via Zoom.
