What's in the online catalogue?

The catalogue contains descriptions of over 60 different collections held in the LSHTM archive. Each one of these collections includes a 'collection level description', which gives a summary of all the elements within a selected collection and some information about its background.

Archive collections are catalogued in a hierarchy, so each collection usually includes different levels of catalogue description:

  • Collection level: Top level of description which gives information on all the elements of the collection.
  • Series: Groups of records within a collection
  • Sub-Series : Groups of records within a series
  • File: A file of records within a series or sub-series
  • Item: Individual items within a file or subseries, e.g. an individual letter within a correspondence sub-series or file.

There can be any number of levels within a collection and our collections are catalogued to varying degrees of detail. All our collections in the online catalogue are described to at least series level.

What's not in the online catalogue?

The administrative records of the School, and names of former students who studied at the School are not available. Please contact the archives for further details.

The Archives do not look after Rare Books. These can be found using Discover.
