SME opens research library in Colorado

By |  April 16, 2015

The Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) opened a research library—the Stewart Wallace Memorial Library (SWML)—at its office in Englewood, Colo. The library aims to serve the needs of SME members, staff and the general public.

The SWML was named after SME Distinguished Member Stewart R. Wallace. Upon his passing, Wallace bestowed nearly $1 million to SME, which allowed the society to move to a larger headquarters and install the library.

“SME members, as well as the general public, will now have access to the large body of technical knowledge housed in the Stewart Wallace Memorial Library,” says SME Executive Director David Kanagy. “We are proud to offer the community a connection to world-class information.”

The 800 sq. ft. library houses more than 1,900 publications, many of which are rare books and manuscripts related to the mining and metallurgy industries.
