Marine Biological Laboratory–Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library

Marine Biological Laboratory–Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library Review

With more than 5,000 scientific journals in 40 languages, this is one of the world's best collections of biological, ecological, and oceanographic literature. The Rare Books Room contains photographs, monographs, and prints, as well as journal collections that date from 1665.

Unless you are a scientific researcher, the only way you can get in to see the library is by taking the hour-long tours. Led by retired scientists, the tours include an introductory slide show as well as stops at the library and the marine resources center. Reservations are required.
