The purpose of the Library is to meet the literature and information needs of the laboratory's researchers. It also serves other agencies and the community at large (by appointment) as a center of information on the subjects of fisheries, marine biology, oceanography and ecology.
The collection consists of approximately 4,000 book volumes, 400 periodical titles, and 8,000 technical reports. Additionally, the library subscribes to a multitude of journals via electronic access. Special collections include publications on the local estuary, St. Andrew Bay, a species information file and 35mm slide collection.
