Library & Archives

The National Corvette Museum Library & Archives is the repository for all materials documenting the past, present and future of Corvette, Corvette enthusiasts and the Corvette Museum. The material managed and preserved in the L&A include audio and visual media – both digital (DVDs) and magnetic (VHS and beta tapes), periodicals, books, drawings, paintings, posters, memorabilia and documents including some important historical memorabilia plus build sheets. Most materials have been donated to the NCM from individual enthusiasts, publishing companies, print media, aftermarket suppliers, clubs and organizations such as NCRS, and from GM/Chevrolet.

Currently the L&A has over 1500 DVDs cataloged, nearly 700 VHS tapes, over 4500 magazines, 350 books, 100 cassette tapes and more.

The Library and Archives is the first point of contact for questions about particular years, colors, features or other details of various Corvette model years or special production runs.
