The LMS Library

The London Mathematical Society's collection of mathematical books began in 1866 and was housed at UCL until 1870. After moving to Albemarle Street and later the Science Museum, the Society’s Library returned to UCL in 1928 where it can still be found today.

The Society's Library contains a collection of
