The Insurance Library enriches the insurance and risk management community by preserving the history of insurance, by offering unsurpassed research services, by providing and supporting education, and by facilitating engagement.


The community we serve includes anyone with an interest in insurance information, including students, scholars, consumers, and those employed in the insurance business.

In the area of research, our professional staff and unique collection provide insights and information that are largely unavailable to the public from other sources. 

We are both providers and supporters of education, committed to helping members of the insurance business build their knowledge for the benefit of their careers and the public they serve and engaged in efforts to attract and educate the next generation regarding insurance and risk management career opportunities. 

Our unique role as a hub of the insurance community gives us the ability to offer unparalleled opportunities for engagement among its members, through in-person events, online networking, and development of content.
