History of the Library
The Fire Research Institute's library was founded in 1983 and operated as such for several years. In 1991 the library was loaned to the International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF) and operated in conjunction with IAWF's many other projects until January 2000. Now, FRI again has control of the library.
