Dr. James E. Hanks Memorial Research Library & Conference Room



Milford Lab Library

About

Dr. Victor L. Loosanoff started the library in 1933 when he was Director of the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries, Biological Laboratory in Milford, Connecticut, now the Milford Laboratory.

It is dedicated to Dr. James E. Hanks, Director from 1962-1985, who established an extensive library research and aquaculture collection.

Collections

The laboratory originally specialized in shellfish aquaculture, and the library still retains that collection of primary literature from the early years of those investigations.

Over time, scientific direction and research at the Milford Laboratory broadened. Current library support includes extensive holdings in coastal pollution, estuarine ecology, and aquatic animal pathology, as well as both fish and shellfish aquaculture.

Materials are only loaned to staff and other libraries.

Hours

Mon-Fri 9-4:30 -- Email first for an appointment.
