The Bakken Museum houses books, manuscripts, and artifacts related to the history of electricity. Over 2,500 artifacts are searchable in a database or the user can browse through them alphabetically. There are images and very short descriptions of the artifacts. The library also houses a collection of books and manuscripts, which can be searched or browsed alphabetically according to century.
Of much use to researchers is an extensive "Bibliography of Secondary Literature on the History of Electricity and Magnetism in Medicine and the Life Science" which is accessible from the Collections page.
