Open in late 2015, the Dana Library and Research Centre provides a world-class environment for academic research within the Science Museum, bringing together the museum's Research and Public History Department and access to its library and archive collections. With the aim of increasing the use and understanding of the Science Museum's outstanding collections, by academics and the public alike, it's a welcoming environment that provides visitors with access to a curated core collection of heavily-used academic and popular books and journals for the history, biography and social aspects of physical science, technology and medicine.
