Library

The Institution of Structural Engineers’ Library contains over 36,000 publications covering all aspects of structural engineering.

The Library collection ranges from current research to material dating back to the 18th century. The formation of a library was one of the first activities of the fledgling Institution when it was founded as The Concrete Institute in 1908. Over time it has grown to become a wonderful collection, representing the body of knowledge of structural engineering over the last century with new material continuously being added.
