Description

The State Library of Oregon cultivates, preserves, and delivers library and information services to foster lifelong leaning and community engagement.

There are three main divisions of the State Library:

Government Information and Library Services provides research and reference assistance to state government and to persons on official state business. Their in-depth collection of more than one million items specializes in business, history, political and social sciences. The collection also includes federal and state government publications and a comprehensive collection of materials about Oregon.
