Library and Archives
The BIS Library is an extensive collection of reference and research archives related to space exploration and the history of the Society, dating back to the founding of the BIS in 1933. This unique and historic collection tells the story of space travel, academic research and contains key papers from space agencies from around the world.
The Library is available to our Members and Fellows and whilst it is not possible to borrow books or journals, it is possible to arrange for a limited number of photocopies to be taken if required for studying or research purposes. You must book to visit by contacting us.
Research service: The BIS operates a research service. Where work will take longer than half a day, a daily rate is charged of £50, with Members and Fellows receiving a 50% discount.
