The W.F. Thompson Memorial Library has a significant collection of books, journals,
reports, and reprints on marine science and fisheries topics, as well as an extensive collection of U.S. Fish
Commission Reports (dating back to 1871) and Bulletins (dating back to 1881). The public is welcome to use the library and
copy material, but all materials must remain in the library. Links
to other libraries may be helpful in your search for information.
The library is named after the late W.F. Thompson (1888 - 1965), a prominent
fishery biologist and a major contributor to the theory that variations in fish abundance are the result
of fishing pressure.
