Please note that due to the developing coronavirus (Covid-19) emergency, the OECD Research Centre is closed to the public until further notice. The Library & Archives team can provide for specific official documents or publications, if they are available on digital format. We can’t provide scanning on demand.
If you wish to be alerted when the Research Centre will be re-opened, you can send us an e-mail.
The OECD Library and Archives offers information, reference, and research services to both individual and institutional users.
The OECD Library & Archives collection dates from 1947. It includes records from the Committee for European Economic Co-operation (CEEC) and the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC), predecessors of today's OECD.
The collection contains items which document the Organisation's work including agendas and minutes of Council and committee meetings, background documents, technical and working papers, publications, press information, and Secretary-Generals’ speeches.
External researchers and postgraduate students are welcome to consult OECD publications and archival material, on the OECD premises by appointment.
To plan your visit to the OECD, please complete the online request form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A professional information specialist will be available to assist you.
Unclassified documents and those that have been declassified from 1990 onwards are available online at Official Unclassified OECD Documents.
The Library & Archives offices are located at OECD Headquarters and are open from 9.00 to 17.45, Monday to Friday. For location details, please see Getting to the OECD.
