Peter Mitham: Probably the best collection of Service's books in a public collection, and outside the copyright libraries in the U.K., exists at the Yukon Archives, Whitehorse.

The most extensive collection of manuscript sources and assorted Serviciana is at the Mitchell Library, North Street, Glasgow. But these are mostly manuscripts from late in his career, and largely of unpublished work. I've detailed over 30 individual manuscript collections in the bibliography, so you can see the stuff is pretty diffused.
