Resources Available at NAL

Borrowing Materials from the National Agricultural Library (NAL)

Eligible patrons (USDA employees, libraries, associations and organizations) may borrow directly from the library; others may obtain the resources through interlibrary loan via their local library. Information on lending services at NAL can be found on the Borrow Materials web page.

NAL no longer provides the direct service document delivery program for special affiliated food and nutrition programs, which was previously supported by an interagency agreement. Individuals who previously used this service should submit requests through the interlibrary loan service of their local library. Ask a Question about requesting NAL materials for more information.
