Library (IRC)


Friday, January 20th, for
Inauguration Day.

We invite you to explore the security database of over 30,000 items described within 1000+ subject areas. Traditional print materials in the library’s collection at ASIS HQ are supplemented by thousands of digital items linked through the database/catalog for every function of a security specialist in every industry sector.

Reference Services

IRC librarians provide basic reference assistance for security inquiries and will use all available resources to fulfill a member's request. We do not provide legal, legislative, or statistical research, nor investigative services, but we can assist in locating them. Requests are answered in the order received, usually within two business days.
