About this guide
The Washington area is rich in libraries and information sources. This guide features a selective list of local libraries that are of particular interest to students of international relations.
While the guide's emphasis is on libraries open to
SAIS users, access restrictions vary from library to library. In some cases, materials may be used within the library only, while other libraries may allow you to borrow directly. In most cases, you will have to borrow materials via SAIS Interlibrary Loan.
Before visiting any of these libraries, be sure to check their website(s) or phone ahead.
