The ITOPF Library houses an extensive collection of books, reports, conference papers and technical articles on oil pollution, clean-up techniques and related topics. It is a primary source of information for our technical staff and is open to students and other outside visitors for reference purposes.
Opening Hours: 9.30 - 5pm, Monday - Friday by appointment
Subjects covered by the Library include:-
- Liability and compensation
- Contingency planning
- Fate & effects of oil
- Clean-up operations & techniques
- Environmental impact of oil spills
- Case histories
We subscribe to several journals, including the Oil Spill Intelligence Report, Marine Pollution Bulletin, Maritime Risk International and Fish Farming International, and regularly receive newsletters from P&I Clubs and industry associations. We have a small collection of videos and DVDs (specific incidents, equipment, training etc.) which may be viewed on the premises and a large number of nautical charts, pilots, marine atlases and coastal sensitivity maps. Photocopying facilities are available but we regret that items cannot be borrowed from the Library.
