UCL Library, Culture, Collections & Open Science


Library, Culture, Collections and Open Science (LCCOS)

Library, Culture, Collections and Open Science (LCCOS) is a department within the Office of the UCL Vice-Provost (Faculties). We provide outstanding staff, services and resources to support the world-class research, education and enterprise that is undertaken in UCL. We connect the world with UCL through innovative programming and engagement activities. We are the home of the Office for Open Science and Scholarship and a partner in the UCL Research Institute for Collections. LCCOS was formed in December 2021 and we are working to update the websites of our services to reflect our new identity.
