The California State Railroad Museum Library & Archives staff may refer patrons to other institutions or organizations for assistance. Some of those we most frequently refer researchers to are listed in the file below. Nearly all have a website which may include additional information about each collection, contact information, as well as links to other helpful sites. For some we have indicated a collection of particular interest. Although we attempt to keep this list current, alert the Library & Archives staff to errors or necessary changes.
