Historia

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) was formed on 23 October 1998, with the amalgamation of the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RACOG) and the Royal New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RNZCOG).

The Royal Australian College
The Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was formally established in August 1978. In 1980 the prefix 'Royal' was acquired and the College became the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RACOG). The new College replaced the former Australian Council of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in London.

The Royal New Zealand College
The New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was formally established in January 1982. The prefix ‘Royal’ was acquired in 1984 and the College became the Royal New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RNZCOG). The new College replaced the former New Zealand Council of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), in London.

Contexto geográfico y cultural

The strength of the general collection lies in titles published in Australia and New Zealand in the areas of obstetrics, gynaecology, women's health, sex education and birth control. The collection also includes significant publications from all over the world.
