The National Meteorological Library holds a specialised collection of books, reports and journals related to meteorological and related sciences. While most of the library's collection is 20th century material, some historical documents - particularly statistical climate data for Australia - date from the 1850's. The Library has been functioning since the creation of the Commonwealth Bureau of Meteorology in 1908.
