To make better decisions for tomorrow, it is critical that we effectively manage the wealth of sustainable development knowledge available today. As physical and virtual meeting places of the mind, cultural incubators and spaces for learning, libraries offer some essential ingredients for achieving sustainable development.

Tapping into our collective knowledge about people and nature reveals possibilities for a more sustainable future. Much of this knowledge can be found in various forms in print and electronic media, and sourced through the library's database, SD-Cite (http://sd-cite.iisd.org).
IISD's Research Library specifically locates, organizes and provides access to knowledge about:
SD-Cite: IISD Research Library Database
Updated on a daily basis, this database contains thousands of print and electronic sources of information on sustainable development. Sources in this fully searchable database are classified according to the OECD Macrothesaurus and descriptors.
GENERata: Knowledge for Future Generations
GENERata web-magazine keeps you up-to-date on sustainable development issues and insights from creative thinkers. It takes the best information and transforms it into knowledge, showcases ideas and captures the past to inform the future.
