Description of library/collection
Resource library with over 3,000 published titles, unpublished titles and a considerable pamphlet collection which has been previously cataloged using Dewey Decimal into a card system. While many of the published titles have been entered into Voyager with LCSH and call number, a number of published titles were accessioned into the park archives which the archivist believes is inappropriate.
