About the Archives

The Lady And Book Stacks

The Queen Square Archives collections are housed in and managed by the Queen Square Library.

The Queen Square Archives seeks to provide access to the historical records of the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery, and the Maida Vale Hospital. The aim is to use these records to tell the medical, scientific, educational and social story of the development of Neurology and Neurosurgery, of Queen Square, and the people who worked here; to make this available to as wide an audience as possible, and to promote further academic and public understanding of these areas.
