The LA84 Foundation Sports Library houses one of the world's most comprehensive collections of sports information. The LA84 Foundation provides traditional library services and has built an extensive digital collection of sports publications available on this website.

The LA84 Foundation library collection covers virtually all aspects of amateur and professional sport. It includes approximately 40,000 printed volumes, 6,000 microform volumes, 7,000 videos, 400 periodical titles, and 90,000 photo images. The library supplements these holdings by providing access to several commercial online database services and the World Wide Web. Olympic information is a particular strength of the collection.

The library is free and open to the public. Before you visit, we recommend that you call to be certain that no special event will prevent you from using the facility. Group visits are welcome, but must be arranged in advance.

The LA84 Foundation has undertaken an ambitious project to convert portions of its traditional library collection to digital format. The growing digital collection now contains more than 300,000 pages, stored in over 100,000 PDF files. Digital resources include academic journals, scholarly books, popular sports magazines of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and an extensive offering of Olympic publications. The Olympic titles include a complete run of back issues of Olympic Review, the official publication of the International Olympic Committee, and two dozen Olympic Games official reports. All of the digital publications are available at no cost to website visitors. The LA84 Foundation Search page provides full-text access to all digital documents and shows a complete list of titles.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
