Formed in 1818, The Institution of Civil Engineers archive holds a large and distinctive collection of books, photographs and manuscripts relating to the construction industry, both past and present, with the earliest book (a copy of the Trevis' Book on Architecture) dating back to the 15th century.

From promoting collections, to supporting the panel for historical engineering works, Carol Morgan provides a fascinating insight into her role as archivist and outlines the rich and varied collections she has had the good fortune to work on.

Carol also talks about how The Institution of Civil Engineers has invested in its online presence and how, as a result, it now has a wide variety of e-books and e-journals easily accessible to the public.

As a glimpse of things to come, perhaps, Carol discusses ICE's experience with online exhibitions. So far these have showcased engineering feats from World War I and World War II as well as the unique and prestigious content of the library catalogue, including landmark projects like Tower Bridge and The Bell Rock Lighthouse by such luminaries as Robert Stevenson, Sir Alexander Gibb and John Wolfe Barry.
