What’s changing in March?
By the end of March 2021 most of wellcomelibrary.org will be retired, after many years of valued service. Some webpages will be transferred as they are, while others will no longer be available.
Most of the catalogue services that you’re familiar with will still be available and you can already access them in the Collections section at wellcomecollection.org.
Some things, such as a new document ordering function will take a bit longer to appear because we haven’t been able to test them while the library has been closed during lockdown. We hope to have these services on wellcomecollection.org by the summer.
After March, the Wellcome Library Blog archive will only be available on the Internet Archive platform.
The London medical officers of health (MOH) reports interface will no longer be available via the library website after March, but you’ll still be able to access it directly https://wellcomelibrary.org/moh/.
All of our digitised historical MOH reports, including those from the rest of the country that are not on London’s Pulse, are available through the catalogue on the Wellcome Collection website.
All the items in our digital collections will be available via the catalogue search in the Collections section.

What happens next?
Changes to the merged Wellcome Collection website will continue to be tested and developed after the library site is retired.
