Wirtz Labor Library

Established in 1917, the Department of Labor Library is one of the oldest Cabinet-level libraries. Large segments of its collection — which document the history of labor, labor unions, and the growth and development of the labor movement in a national and world context — are unique either in their nature and content or in the length and completeness of their coverage.
