From time to time the RIAS is approached from members looking to find a new home for architectural books they no longer require.

Over the last couple of years the RIAS Bookshop has had a section whereby members have donated books for others to enjoy. In return we have a collection tin to ask those taking any books to consider giving a small donation to the Architects Benevolent Society (ABS).

We have previously been asked by members if we can sell books on their behalf, when they are winding up business or no longer require or have a use for their architectural library. The RIAS Bookshop is now offering a service to members where it will sell selected second hand books on their behalf with a small fee to cover costs.

If you are interested in donating or looking to sell some titles please contact the RIAS Bookshop Manager, Stuart Bryce, by calling 0131 229 7545 or emailing for more information.
