The FAO Library was initiated upon the foundation of the Organization in 1945 in Washington, D.C.

It was moved to the new FAO headquarters in Rome in 1950 and merged with the library of the International Institute of Agriculture. To honor the founder of the IIA, the library was named the David Lubin Memorial Library in 1952. Today the Library contains over 1 million FAO and non FAO documents, special and digital collections, on all FAO topics, sustaining FAO as a knowledge organization.
