Heritage Material

This section of the website contains the older archival and heritage material housed in the ECMC Library, which has been scanned, digitised and post-processed to enable easy access for research and resource purposes. We have started with the oldest items first and leading towards the present day in chronological order of processing.  The information being provided is for public access and consumption/use and in PDF format.  An index is provided covering the range of material available.

Rather than duplicate the heritage and history records and material from other national engineer organisations, such as the RAE, RCE, RE, USACE, etc, go to our LINKS page, access these organisations and scan/see what they have to offer. We only want to make digital copies of our ECMC library and museum holdings, materials and resources, on our website.

We’re regularly adding to this collection. Come back soon and see what’s new.

NB: This site works best in Chrome or Firefox web browsers. Oversized pages (eg plates) for each book will be scanned at a later date. If you wish to see the plates, please email ecmc@inspire.net.nz
