Our growing library currently contains over 7,000 volumes relating to transportation, steel, mining, munitions, ships and shipbuilding, the development of technology, and regional history. Certain particularly rare books with strong provenance are stored in the archives rather than the library. The library does not circulate and must be viewed onsite. Since some library material is stored offsite all requests should be made in advance to ensure that items are available. Photocopies are available of material in good condition that will not be damaged by such a process.
