Library Services

Our information and archive service offers access to the very best information on surveying from around the world; available when you want it, how you want it. The library has over 80,000 items either online or in paper form.

Our online library catalogue

You can search our online catalogue by word or phrase, author, title, or subject. It contains 2500 electronic documents, plus books, magazine articles, law reports and transcripts.


If you would like to view any of the books or journals or access the online databases we have available in the library for RICS professionals (Egi, CoStar and Westlaw), please make an appointment using the form below. Please give us at least three days’ notice of your visit as the library is currently being used for an exhibition to mark 150 years of RICS and access is therefore limited.


You can consult our e-resources which are available to RICS members 24/7, wherever you are in the world.
