Circulation Services

Circulation Services

Materials are loaned only to staff of Permanent Missions to the OAS and the General Secretariat.

As a general rule publications are available for loan for a period of:

  • books - two weeks

  • periodicals - two weeks

  • recent issues - three days (depending upon currency and demand)

  • Inter-Library Loan- 20 days (D.C. Metropolitan area) or one month outside of the D.C. Metropolitan area.

    Loan periods may be extended when necessary. A request for renewal of a loan must be directed to the Circulation Desk (202) 458-6039.

    Publications from the Archives, Reference, Rare books, or Special Collections, can only be consulted in the Reading Room. The same regulations also apply to certain publications labeled non-circulating, such as material published prior to 1920.
