About the Library

The Research Library provides access to extensive collections of books, journals, databases, technical reports, standards, patents and more.

We provide literature searching, training, outreach, and services in scholarly communication, data management and stewardship of the Laboratory’s scholarly output. The Library’s R&D component pursues cutting-edge work in areas such as open archives, recommendation systems and visualization, information infrastructure, information interoperability, and long-term persistence of the scholarly record.

Agile at the Library

The Research Library has adopted Agile to sustain its ability to deliver innovative and responsive services, in alignment with our mission and vision. Though it originated as a framework for advancement of software development activities, we use it for that and more. Agile helps us to adapt to changing requirements, embody a learning organization, improve project outcomes, tap the distributed insight of our team, and be a better place to work. We believe in the potential of Agile to also advance a model of more collaborative and open science.


We amplify the Laboratory’s mission-driven research by enabling LANL researchers to learn powerful skills and access expertise and scholarly information, developing new methods for managing data and information, and connecting researchers with colleagues and the broader scientific ecosystem.


We are shaping the future of research libraries: digital-first institutions with a seamless user experience and services that evolve with the open and classified information ecosystem, and where collaboration and open scientific research are integral.
