In USDA's South Building, the National Agricultural Library's D.C.

DCRC's temporary new location is on the Sixth Floor, along the C Street Side of the South Building. The move is part of the renovation of the South Building's Wings 4 and 5.

From September 26 through October 3, requests for information should be directed by telephone (301) 504-5755 or e-mail to the Service Desk at the main National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland. DCRC staff may also be contacted for assistance at (202)720-3434 or by e-mail. The NAL Web site and Agricola database also provides access to a range of agricultural information resources.
