Library and Archives cube

The Library and Archives "cube" is the signature architectural feature of AIP's headquarters.

The Niels Bohr Library & Archives is a repository and clearinghouse for information in the history of physics, astronomy, geophysics and allied fields.

In-house holdings include an outstanding collection of textbooks, monographs and related publications; over 30,000 photographs and other images; over 1,500 oral histories with many of the outstanding figures in the fields that we cover; and archival records of AIP and its Member Societies along with other archival records and personal papers of a select number of scientists.

In our International Catalog of Sources (ICOS) we have over 10,000 collections from over 900 repositories worldwide.
