National Agricultural Library

United States Department of Agriculture

The National Agricultural Library is one of four national libraries of the United States and houses one of the world's largest collections devoted to agriculture and its related sciences.

NAL was created with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1862 and designated a national library in 1962.  It is located in Beltsville, Maryland, on the grounds of the USDA's Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.  Since the library has a dual role to serve the public and the USDA, it is committed to expanding online access to its collections. 

Additonal full-text resources are available in the NAL Digital Collections.
