Howard and Dede Brokaw Research Library & Archives

The Howard and Dede Brokaw Research Library & Archives 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 archives houses field notes, correspondence, photographs and other material related to the collectors whose specimens are part of our collections.

The library is not a circulating library. Contact library@delmnh.org for more information.
