Industrial and Labor Relations Library

As the most comprehensive resource of its type in North America, the Martin P. Catherwood Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) Library supports instruction and research in nearly every aspect of the workplace. Its extensive materials are concentrated in the areas of collective bargaining, economic and social statistics, labor and employment law, labor economics, labor history, labor unions, human resources, income security, international and comparative labor relations, negotiation and conflict resolution and organizational behavior.

Primary source materials for research are the focus of the Library's Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives, which is a major repository for labor union archives, union constitutions, collective bargaining agreements, rare pamphlets, photographs, films and oral histories.
