OECD Archives

 

The OECD Library and Archives offers information, reference, and research services to both individual and institutional users.


The collection

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.

Consulting the collection

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 library&archives@oecd.org.

Please note that the Centre for External Researchers will be closed from 22 December to 2 January (inclusive).
