The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is the most revered Hall of Fame in sports. The Museum contains thousands of artifacts skillfully displayed for your enjoyment.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame Library was founded in 1939 as a part of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Its mission is to collect, organize, and preserve the complete history of our National Pastime as recorded in all media formats, for the use of baseball fans and researchers. Today, the Library contains the most extensive collection of archival material devoted exclusively to Baseball in the world. This is a public facility and thousands of researchers, Museum visitors, callers and correspondents are served annually. The majority are grass roots baseball fans. Others using the facilities include officials of organized baseball leagues and clubs, players and their families, print media journalists, radio and television journalists, the entertainment industry, the manufacturing and marketing industries, the advertising profession, students of all ages, faculties of educational institutions, authors, publishers, genealogy researchers and other museums and libraries. A full-time professional staff is available to assist patrons.
