About us

Who we are

The History Research Libraries Committee (HRLC) is a UK-based group that brings together everyone with an interest or involvement in history research collections, including librarians, archivists, museum staff and others. Formerly the Committee of London Research Libraries in History (CLRLH), it provides a forum for exchange, networking and collaboration between libraries and other organisations with history collections in the UK. It holds three committee meetings a year and is involved in the organisation of special events to promote history collections, including the annual event History Day.
