Seventeen database services are available to U.S. Department of the Interior employees at their desktops and in the Library. They contain Congressional, Executive, and Judicial documents, electronic books and reference information, and articles from journals, conference proceedings, magazines, newsletters, and newspapers.
These databases are available to all departmental employees at their desktops. Employees who are teleworking may access them through the Department's VPN. Others must contact a Reference Librarian for assistance.
The Interior Library Reference Staff also maintains access to the Lexis Advance, Westlaw and PACER online databases. Departmental employees can contact the Library by phone at (202) 208-5815 or via the Library's Questions and Comments form if they would like a reference librarian to conduct a work-related search in any of these databases.
To help you determine whether and where a needed electronic book or journal is available online, we provide this complete, searchable alphabetical list of titles. If you're not sure where to find a title online, try this list first.
The list combines the full-text books and journals in all the database services to which the Library has access. Also included are some single subscriptions as well as selected open-access books and journals. Most entries include coverage dates, and all entries have links directly to the resource.
Please direct your questions on database searching strategies to a Reference Librarian.
