The Library of the Italian War History Museum has over 35 000 items including books and booklets about history and military technology (artillery, fortifications and equipment).
The majority of these works have been collected through acquisitions and private donations.

Part of the collection is the Emeroteca (newspaper and periodical library), which contains more than 1.900 examples of newspapers and specialist magazines. It features a wide range of newspapers from the trenches, from Fiume and from Dalmatia, as well as colonial magazines. Current magazines cover the various disciplines of the museum, from contemporary history (with particular reference to military history) to working in the museum, education and public-records sectors. They also cover military technology (arms and fortifications) and problems in the defence sector.
