The NPS Library Information Center is the gateway to the NPS LIBRIS Discovery portal, which provides end-users access to the read-only version of the NPS Library Catalog (where we have many of our library holdings cataloged), as well as links to numerous other NPS and NPS-related information resources, many of them digital.
