National Agricultural Library, U.S. Department of Agriculture

The National Agricultural Library was created as the departmental library for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1862 and became a national library in 1962. One of four national libraries of the United States (with the Library of Congress, the National Library of Medicine, and the National Library of Education), it is also the coordinator for a national network of State land-grant and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) field libraries. In its international role, the National Agricultural Library serves as the U.S. center for the international agricultural information system, coordinating and sharing resources and enhancing global access to agricultural data. The National Agricultural Library's collection of over two million volumes and its leadership role in information services and technology applications combine to make it the foremost agricultural library in the world. The National Agricultural Library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except Federal holidays). The Reference Desk is staffed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
