Visit to Royal Academy Library

he RA Library is the oldest fine arts library in the UK, having begun when the Royal Academy was founded in 1768. The library was originally started to support the needs of the artists & architects studying in the newly formed RA Schools.

The Library still supports the post-graduate students in the RA Schools, but now also supports the staff involved in the other activities of the RA, e.g. curating and researching our exhibition programme, learning programme and publications. The library is also open to external researchers by appointment.
