Three Mile Island 2 Recovery and Decontamination Collection

The Pennsylvania State University Libraries have acquired several thousand videotapes, reports, and photographs that were generated during the successful cleanup and recovery of the Three Mile Island Unit 2 (TMI-2) nuclear reactor. The materials reflect the work done during the 1979 – 1990 time period. All of the materials are available for public use. The contents of the videotape and report collections are searchable through two databases on this web site. The photographs have not been cataloged and are not indexed in a database.

Fragile Material Notice: Not all of the videotapes are available for viewing or copying. Many have become too fragile to be used. Requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

Using Materials On-site

On-site use requires a three week advance notice since many of the videos are stored in remote facilities and must be retrieved and cleaned before use.
