Astonishing Science. Spectacular museum.
Since 1992, the Science Museum Library has operated a computerised Online Library Catalogue jointly with Imperial College Libraries.
Our main library catalogue is shared with Imperial College. It includes a large part of our library holdings and most of our Archive Collections holdings.
Over two-thirds of the catalogued book collections are on the computer catalogue, including:
Our remaining card catalogue entries are gradually being computerised. We are currently adding records for 19th century books in all subjects.
Also available is our National Railway Museum Library catalogue.
Please note that our London Library within Imperial College closed on 3 February 2014. A new Research Centre with library facilities will open at the Science Museum in late 2015.
