The RHS currently has a worldwide membership of over 4,100 engaged in researching and presenting history. Our membership is entitled to a range of benefits including regular RHS newsletters and electronic mailings, newly published editions of Transactions, and other RHS publications including the Camden Series and Studies in History, at a substantial discount. They also have access to the RHS’s collection of national and local history records and publications, located at our offices at University College London. We represent the interests of historical researchers in universities, libraries, archives, museums, and independent researchers. Our activities are greatly supported by the annual subscription paid by the membership which is essential to sustain our work.
