The Institute for Research on Labor and Employment Library (IRLEL) is an Affiliated Library of the UC Berkeley campus. It serves faculty, staff, students, members of the Institute for research on Labor and Employment (formerly the Institute of Industrial Relations), other researchers in the UC system, and the general public. Outreach services are of special import.
LIBRARY ACCESS PROCEDURES
The IRLE now utilizes an intercom on the front door of 2521 Channing Way.
All visitors including library patrons must use this intercom to enter the building. You must look up the Library on the intercom directory under “L”
HOW TO BORROW LIBRARY MATERIAL
