Over the years the Museum Service has built up an important reference library of glass books and periodicals that are available to researchers. Their is an extensive collection of auction house catalogues, publications by glass societies' and trade journals. Videos and films of glassmaking are also collected.
Library visits and book requests must be booked in advance. The Glass Library is reference only therefore readers must be able to visit Himley Hall in order to view the books. The glass library is not open to the general public and viewing is by appointment only.
Photocopying facilities are available (a small charge per sheet applies).
