National Park Service Electronic Library

The NPS Electronic Library is a portal to thousands of electronic publications and videos, covering the history of the National Park Service and the cultural and natural history of the national parks, monuments, and historic sites of the U.S. National Park System.

While not affiliated with the National Park Service, our aim is to build on the legacy of the old NPS History e-Library. New content is added on the first of each month.
