The Archives of Falconry contains the most comprehensive English-language falconry library in the world. It includes falconry books, articles and essays, manuscripts, equipment, memorabilia, art, field notes, and a substantial media collection on the ancient sport of falconry. Modern falconers were instrumental in organizing the successful recovery effort of the once-endangered Peregrine Falcon.
The collection and preservation of falconry-related materials is the priority of The Archives, and accessions from individuals and clubs are added every year. Each contribution is attributed to the donor and may contain multiple items.
Periodically, an auction of duplicate books is held to raise funds for the operations of the Archives. Falconers often contribute items for sale, such as books and art, specifically for this purpose in addition to their financial support.
