Description: The Library is named after the philanthropist Sir Adolph Basser (1887-1965) whose gift of £25,000 ($50,000) in 1960 enabled it to be established. It collects both published and unpublished material documenting the history of science in Australia, and promotes related historical research. There is particular emphasis on collecting biographical material about prominent scientists.

The library is currently staffed 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) by a qualified librarian with training in archives work. Opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm. It is open to all bona fide researchers.
