The museum's library is now fully functional, with the successful transfer of all the books, documents, magazines and photo albums from the old library taking place last year. The new library has both heating and air conditioning and more shelves will be added this year to accommodate the ever increasing number of books and donated written material.
It is equipped with two work stations, both of which are furnished with a desktop computer, flat screen monitor and a scanner/printer. Both computers are connected to the internet which allows researchers to access further information relating to their chosen subject.
The process of digitising our archives has begun and we now have the Operational History of the 390th Bomb Group and several photo albums on a searchable database available on the computers. The digitising of the archives is an ongoing process.
Since it opened, as well as general enquiries, it has been used by an Oxford graduate to research material for a thesis and by families of veterans who served in the 390th Bomb Group and the British Resistance Organisation, to obtain further information and details of their service.
