The NATO Multimedia Library holds over 13,000 books (print and electronic) and subscribes to more than 150 journals. The collection focuses on international relations, security and defense, military questions and current world affairs. Not only books are catalogued and indexed, but also more than 30,000 individual articles in journals. You can search for them in our Catalog.
The collection development policy provides a framework for the development and maintenance of the Library collections. The policy provides Library staff with guidance for the selection of material in order to maintain the fundamental long term goals of the collection in terms of subject coverage, and to balance these with emerging and shorter term priorities. For this reason, the policy is not a static document and will change to reflect the interests and activities of the Organization over time.
