The Library is an ongoing project to document the Nuclear Age, through the collection of artifacts and publications, with the intent of furthering the knowledge and understanding of this era. Focus is primarily on nuclear weapons, and the part they have played in the political, social, and economic world. The collection is at present very modest, but grows continuously.
Below is a document listing most of the publications in The Library. Not listed are the numerous articles from various periodicals and pamphlets, and the artifacts that are in the collection. In the future, a full listing will be available, and photographs of the artifacts will also be made available for viewing.
If you have anything to add to The Library, you are encouraged to contact the Curator. All donated items will be gladly accepted, postage paid by The Library. Anything offered for sale will be given due consideration. The Library does not accept any Classified documents or materials, nor any radioactive items that cannot be delivered through the U.S. Postal Service. For details regarding possession and mailing of radioactive materials, click here.
