The Museum Studies Reference Library has more than 28,000 books, over 280 periodical titles, as well as multi-media material. Subject areas covered include museum operations, museum organization, administration and management, and programs. The MSRL collection also contains many historic and current Smithsonian publications in our non-circulating "Smithsoniana" collection. In 2010 the MSRL collection was moved and is now housed near the main National Museum of Natural History library collection.
