About

On 10 June 1952, the Library of FAO was officially opened and named the David Lubin Memorial Library:
"In recognition of the foresight, leadership, and outstanding contribution of David Lubin to international co-operation in the field of agriculture". (FAO Conference 1950)

Today the David Lubin Memorial Library preserves one and a half million FAO and non-FAO publications, among which a collection of rare books and incunabula and the historic collections of the International Institute of Agriculture (IIA), the predecessor of FAO. [more]

The Library welcomes both FAO staff and external visitors.

Digital resources

FAO staff has access to many full-text digital resources like for example EIU, EconLit and Elsevier e-books (all resources are listed in the last section of the homepage) and bibliographic databases like the Web of Science and CAB Abstracts.
For an overview of online journals please browse the FAO Journal Finder.
