Research Library 
The Research Library in the Collections and Research Division includes more than 10,000 volumes with an emphasis on mollusks, birds, and Delmarva ecosystems. The library is exceptionally strong in classic and rare systematics works on mollusks, as well as having substantial holdings of recent monographs, reprints, and journals.

The Collections and Research Division Archives houses field notes, correspondence, photographs and other material related to the collectors whose specimens are part of our collections.

Researchers may the library or archives by appointment during the hours 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  The library is not a circulating library.  Contact library@delmnh.org for more information or to make an appointment.
