USDA National Agricultural Library (NAL)

The USDA National Agricultural Library (NAL) provides references and information services to national and international users. Users of the Library's services include:

  • Federal, state, and local government scientists and officials.
  • Farmers.
  • Professors, researchers, and students at universities and colleges.
  • Private scientific and agricultural organizations.
  • Business leaders.
  • News media.
  • General public.
  • Foreign agricultural organizations.

Services can be requested in person, by telephone, in writing or through the Internet. Because of the comprehensive and unique nature of the Library's collection, potential users are asked to use local, state, provincial, and country resources before requesting assistance from NAL.

NAL has a collection of information, primarily focused on nutrition, that is designed specifically for child care providers and programs. NIFA partners with NAL to disseminate the information to local citizens across America.
