This facility contains over 5,000 items of reference material, covering general engineering, technical engineering, combat engineering, general history, heritage items, training manuals from Australia, NZ, UK and the USA, School of Military Engineering (SME) references, professional papers of the Corps of Royal Engineers (1850-1911), biographies, auto-biographies, photo albums, pictorial records, reports of deployments and projects in NZ and overseas, Unit History Sheet records, records of the Sappers Association NZ Inc (1960-), records of the ECMA (1966-89) and Corps histories for the Corps of Royal Engineers, Royal Australian Engineers, Royal Canadian Engineers and the RNZE. In other words, the library component houses the “Technical Information Centre (or TIC)” for the RNZE.
