BAS Library

The BAS Library holds a collection of around 9,000 books and pamphlets, 18,000 offprints and 200 print periodical titles, as well as a wide collection of electronic journals.

The scientific collection covers geology, geophysics, glaciology, climatology, meteorology, upper atmosphere physics, and marine, terrestrial and freshwater biology, all with the accent on the polar regions. In addition, there is a broad collection of material on the history of the polar regions, including historic expedition reports and personal memoirs.
