RUSI DIGITAL COLLECTIONS

The digital collections of the Royal United services Institute for Defence and Security include unique and rare materials from the RUSI Archive, Special Collections and Artworks and they will continue to develop as more items are added in the future. These free online collections make available the heritage and legacy of the Institute from its founding in 1831 for a worldwide audience. It aims to complement nationally significant print collections the RUSI Library of Military History (RMLH).

The Patron’s Fund has generously supported the creation of this online collection and the digitisation of the museum catalogues from 1920-1932. We are also proud to collaborate with Art UK. Art UK enables global audiences to learn about the UK’s national art collection and images from the RUSI Artwork collection can be obtained through their website.
