WSC Copeman, the first honorary librarian of the Heberden Society, and EGL Bywaters, the second honorary librarian, were both instrumental in collecting the items that make up the library we have today.
Since 1966, recent books, reports, proceedings, and documents have been added to the collection with the aim of providing a history of rheumatology for future generations.
To help ensure we have a wide range and up to date historical record of rheumatology, we invite you to donate any relevant books to the Heberden Library. Please contact us with the title and author of the book that you'd like to donate.
Physical copies are stored at the RCP London office, the Wellcome Collection or in the British Society for Rheumatology offices.
