About the library:
The library was established in 1961 with the founding of the Sandy Hook Marine Laboratory. Lionel Walford organized the Sandy Hook Laboratory as a center of game and sportfishing research and formed it into one of the world's foremost marine environmental research centers. The original library collection was comprised of Dr. Walford's own donated books and personal papers. In 1985, the entire holdings of the library were destroyed by fire. About 90% of the current collection was received through donations from other libraries and the scientific community at large. The library specializes in marine sciences, oceanography, ichthyology, marine environmental matters and pollution, and marine ecology. The collection contains books, serial titles, government documents, and reprints. The Chart Room contains nautical, bathymetric, and topographic charts, maps, and atlases; tide and current tables; and climatological data of the U.S. from 1914. The library houses a collection of pamphlets and ready-reference material on approximately 300 subjects such as seafood products, ocean dumping, climate and fisheries, beach erosion, artificial reefs, shipwrecks, etc. The library also holds a collection of older materials, including some of the major expeditions: Galathea Reports, Swedish Deep-Sea Expedition, Dana Reports, Papers of the Danish Biological Station, Reports of the "Michael Sars" Expeditions, Revue der hydrobiologie und hydrographie, Papers from the Tortugas Laboratory, Meddelelser om Gronland, Bulletin of the U.S. Fish Commission, Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Bulletin of the U.S. National Museum, and Serial Atlases of the Marine Environment.

The National Sea Grant Library (NSGL) is the digital library and official archive for NOAA Sea Grant documents. It is the only comprehensive collection of Sea Grant–funded documents from over 30 programs and projects across the country. This collection encompasses a wide variety of subjects, including oceanography, marine education, aquaculture, fisheries, aquatic nuisance species, coastal hazards, seafood safety, limnology, coastal zone management, marine recreation, and law. The NSGL provides global access to over 17,000 full-text digital documents through the 47,000–record, searchable publications database. For those documents that aren't available electronically (including videos and DVDs), or for those patrons without high-speed internet access, the NSGL will be happy to provide hardcopy loans (worldwide) to aid scientists, teachers, students, fishermen, and others in their research and studies.

About the library:
The CCEHBR conducts interdisciplinary research to resolve issues related to coastal ecosystems health and environmental quality, including public health impacts. Some of the high-priority items addressed include harmful algal blooms and their consequences, characterization of marine mammal health, land use impacts on coastal ecology, forensics and genetic applications to support marine wildlife laws, diagnosis and mitigation of fish, oyster, and shrimp diseases. The Marine Resources Library is funded by and supports the College of Charleston, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources Marine Resources Division, and the NOAA Charleston CCEHBR Center. The collection emphasizes marine biology, marine ecology, fisheries science, ichthyology, invertebrate zoology, toxicology, marine forensics, biotechnology, ecotoxicology, phycology, and biochemistry.
