It is a Maritime Administration priority to have its work and the information it compiles be readily accessible and as transparent as possible. This Library section of our site provides access to a wide variety of publications, including the agency's annual report and many statistics on the maritime industry, as well as reports on ship disposal, shipbuilding, port financing and many other topics. There are also definitive compilations of maritime law and shipping terms, plus copies of maritime agreements and maritime treaties, fact sheets, policy papers, and archives of pictures and video.
