National Park Service History Electronic Library

The NPS History Electronic Library is a portal to electronic publications 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. The information contained in this Website is historical in scope and is not meant as an aid for travel planning; please refer to the official National Park Service Website for current information. While we are not affiliated with the National Park Service, we gratefully acknowledge the contributions by park employees and advocates, which has enabled us to create this free digital repository.


Our PARK BROCHURES / SITE BULLETINS Web pages have been extensively revised and expanded. Our digital collection now totals over 16,000 brochures/site bulletins (6,000 of which are cover-only due to copyright restrictions). We hope this redesign will make it easier to locate items of interest.
