What is in the digital library?

IOM3 Digital Library
,
15 Jul 2019

IOM3 has fortunately, through our many mergers, held on to most of the library collection giving us a large historical record of materials and mining content. Our library team acts as a point of enquiry for members and the public, and the physical library protects some of our oldest books, journals and maps as well as theses and reports.

We recently began digitising IOM3 copyright content to support an international audience of members, aid research and education and open up our information to a wider audience.

The digitisation team hope that current practitioners and historians will enjoy exploring our content related to the work of such industry giants as Bessemer, Mellor, Wernher, Twiss and others.  It has also been enlightening to see the old advertisements – just how much was a mining engineer paid in the 1970s? What was the British product from which all Lithophones originated?
