Maritime Libraries in the UK - index

From the Introduction of Maritime Information:

  'The object of this Guide is to list UK libraries, record offices, archives, museums, institutions, associations and other bodies that have, or can make available, information on maritime matters.'

   It provides a subject index, listing collections such as fishing, wrecks, pilot's records, harbour account books, shipping registers to name a very few.     In the transcription I have included the name of the organisation, the address and email address where possible, including a webpage. Subject Coverage and Special Collections are included.
   This book is useful for finding maritime resources in libraries around the UK.
