The Archway Healthcare Library opened in May 1999. The development of the Library by the partners represented a very important stage in the evolution of The Archway Campus, which was jointly purchased by UCL and Middlesex University in 1998.

The Library occupies two floors and the typical Victorian ward architecture has been preserved on the top floor, which creates a striking ambience.

The development of the library was made possible by capital funding from a number of organisations working in partnership; UCL; Middlesex University; the Whittington Hospital; Camden & Islington Community Health Services Trust; the North London Education Consortium; local Primary Care Groups and the North Thames Deanery.

The Library is managed by Middlesex University on behalf of the partners and incorporates the resources of the former Whittington Library. It is being developed to reflect the needs of all the different users of the campus and of the community. Access to key databases and web resources is provided via networks from the two cluster rooms. In addition, a well-equipped IT Training Room provides a teaching facility at the campus for IT skills training.
