About the library
The Science Museum’s world-class library collections chart the world-wide development of science, engineering and medicine from the fifteenth to the twenty-first centuries. Holdings include academic and scholarly works, textbooks and popular works in English and other European languages, as well as books on the history and biography of science, technology and medicine, and their social impact.
Around 5800 books are available at the Dana Research Centre and Library in London, but nearly all of the collections are stored at the Science Museum’s Wroughton facility near Swindon, and selected items can be transported to the library in London for consultation there. The Library holds around 143000 books at Wroughton and significant collections of journals, British patents, trade literature and other ephemera.
