The USAID Library will reopen in its newly renovated location on the Mezzanine level of the Ronald Reagan Building (#M.07-LIB) in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, July 5, 2022. The USAID Library will be open to USAID staff Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET.

The USAID Library is a key resource for accessing USAID development information. It provides USAID staff with access to books, DVDs, travel guides, and other materials geared toward supporting the technical and business programs of the Agency. Many of the Library’s products and services are also available remotely from USAID desktops or by using a token (no password required), including digital access to over 12,000 e-books and 20,000 full text e-journals as well as databases that support agriculture, public health, social sciences, and other scientific disciplines.

Librarians and curation experts work in the physical USAID Library in Washington, D.C. and with digital repositories. The Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC) houses technical and project materials while the Development Data Library (DDL) preserves USAID-funded data. Both repositories play a pivotal role in preserving USAID data and information for years to come.

To get a full list of services and resources available through the USAID Library, search by subject. Each guide provides information on the service, as well as links to resources to help meet your informational needs.

Connect with the library by email at or by phone at +1.202.712.0579.

The USAID Library is a part of USAID Data Services in M/CIO.
