Annual Reports


Through a generous donation from Founder and Director, Ron Manners, Mannkal is fortunate to be home to one of the largest libraries in the southern hemisphere dedicated to free market economics and mining related topics.

The primary purpose for the library is for the use of our scholars in the Mannkal Scholarship Program and as reference sources in our research program.

While there are a variety of sub-sections and unique themes and categories of books, three key sections can be described as:

  1. Philosophical underpinnings of a free society
  2. Mining and the resource sector
  3. Public policy-related material

Incorporating the entire collection of published Liberty Fund works, the philosophically focused section is timeless and incorporates a range of classics as well as now out of print speciality material from Australian and international authors.

Given our geographical location and legacy, we plan to continue to collect and expand our works on Western Australia’s resource sector and the individuals who have made it the success story it is today.
