RESEARCH LIBRARY

 
  Photo (top):  Old museum building
now houses the Research Library

The aim of the Belau National Museum Research Library is to collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public, documents and literature about Palau and Micronesia and to a lesser extent the Pacific. As collections in the library are sensitive to the elements, the Belau National Museum Library is not a circulation library, but welcomes visitors to visit and research during museum hours.

The library holds over 5,000 volumes, as well as numerous periodi­cals, maps, posters, research papers and articles. Rare books include original volumes by Augustin Kramer, a German anthropologist who documented Palauan life and culture in the early 1900's. Other rare materials include Account of the Pelew Islands, Japanese language books, and original field notes.
