About the Library | MLML/MBARI Research Library


Welcome to the joint library of the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). The MLML/MBARI Research Library supports the needs of faculty, researchers, engineers, staff and students at both institutions.

The Library collections are concentrated in fisheries, marine birds and mammals, invertebrate zoology, oceanography, ecology, molecular biology, biogeochemistry, toxicology, marine geology, marine chemistry, and deep-sea biology. The Library also holds resources in support of mechanical, electrical and software engineering and scientific instrumentation.
MLML is part of the California State University System. Using the library's search interface, OneSearch, users have access to over 29 million books at 23 libraries via CSU+.
The MBARI Library and the MLML Library merged in 1999. This private-public partnership integrates access to information, avoids duplication, and leverages each institution's resources through collaborative purchases. And, perhaps most importantly, provides opportunities for collaboration and community through shared information resources in the study of marine science and engineering. The Library is a member of the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Library and Information Centers. Read more about the history of the library.
