Library Search & List

Library Reception Counter Library Reception Counter

The reception counter accepts request slips from visitors who wish to peruse or copy works in the library collection. Please consult us if you have any questions.

Bookshelves (Closed stacks)

The library was initially designed and constructed as a data warehouse for the museum. When the museum decided to open the library to the public, the book stacks were too narrow for public browsing. Here you see what things are like now.

Many books remain on the shelves, yet to be recorded in digital form.
