Library & Further Research

The bibliography is a good starting point for information and further reading about nationalisation, but there is so much more in the Museum Library to discover about Nationalisation, National Coal Board (NCB) and all aspects of coal mining.

The Museum Library has over 20,000 items covering social, geographical and technical aspects of coal mining. The Library team are always happy to help can visitors and researchers with their coal mining queries, why not pop in when you visit the Museum or email / telephone with your question.

You can also gain access to the digitised COAL magazine which was produced by the NCB to share stories about the coal industry from 1947 onwards.
