Frequently Asked for Items
Some of our most sought after items in our collection are our ships’ plans and photographs. We have over 35,000 ships’ plans from various vessels, and over 18,000 photographs.
Our ships’ plans are stored at our off-site storage location, but are accessible to the public through digital reproductions (fees apply, see above) and through in-person visits. All information requests for our ships’ plans should be made directly to us. If you wish to have a digital reproduction made, or if you wish to make an appointment to view plan(s) in-person, please email our Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help you in your search for ships’ plans, the following document lists the names of the vessels that we have plans for: MMBC Ships’ Plans Holdings
We also have several dedicated library volunteers working on cataloguing our photographs to make them more accessible to the public. The majority of our photographs are stored at our public location and are easily accessible. The remaining photographs are stored at our off-site storage location and can be accessed by appointment. If you are interested in our photographs, please also contact our Librarian at email@example.com.
