RHS Collections easier than ever to access online

Online RHS collections
A new RHS Heritage Catalogue, makes the full records of our historic archive, art, ephemera, object and photographic collections freely available online for the first time.

The catalogue will continue to grow, with new records being added all the time. Researchers with a particular interest can now find a broad range of materials across our collections with one quick search. For example, a search for ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ yields 191 artworks, 12 photographs, and 101 items from our archive. Searching for ‘RHS Chelsea’, meanwhile, brings up 22 artworks, 187 photographs, 4 objects, and 89 archive results.

RHS catalogue homepage
The RHS Heritage Catalogue joins our existing RHS Libraries Catalogue, which gives access to our books and printed collections, and RHS Digital Collections, where users can view beautiful, detailed images of some of our collections from wherever they are in the world. To help users choose the right platform to find what they need, we have created a new RHS Collections hub page.

The launch of the RHS Heritage Catalogue is the culmination of years of work by many people across the RHS team and marks an important new phase in our efforts to open up our collections to new audiences and make them freely available online.
