The Round Table: The RCS celebrates 150 years with a new digital archive

The Round Table: The RCS celebrates 150 years with a new digital archive. “The Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) has made public a digital archive of its history as it marks its 150th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of its library and archives becoming part of Cambridge University Library. The society was formed in 1868 as the Colonial Society to promote knowledge and appreciation of Britain’s overseas territories. As the RCS website stated ‘it was conceived of as an intellectual endeavour where papers would be presented at meetings and published in the society’s journals, and the creation of a research library was at the heart of the project’.”
