Housed on the first floor of Goldsmiths’ Hall, the Library was established in the 1950s as part of the Company’s mission to promote jewellery and silversmithing.
Today its collections include over 8,000 books and 15,000 + images, magazines and journals, films, special research collections and subject files on a wide range of topics. The Library is also responsible for the Company’s archives, which date back to the 14th century. We welcome all researchers, from students and academics to professional gold and silversmiths and the general public.
