About the library
The Institution of Civil Engineers was founded in 1818 by a small group of idealistic young men and was granted a royal charter in 1828 where it declared that its aim was to "foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering". With over 130,000 titles, including major conference series and over 900 periodical titles, the ICE Library is the largest single resource in Civil Engineering in the world.
The ICE archives contain records relating to the ICE from its formation to the present, as well as records relating to prominent engineers of the past, including James Brindley, John Smeaton, Thomas Telford and The Rennies; and engineering wonders like Marc Brunel’s Thames Tunnel, Robert Stephenson’s Britannia Bridge, the Forth Railway Bridge, and the Panama Canal.
The local library catalogue is available online.
