Information Resource Center

The Information Resource Center (IRC) supports the objectives and programs of the Public Affairs Section, as well as those of other Embassy sections by offering current, trustworthy information about bilateral areas of interest, U.S. policies, legislation, economy and social topics. The IRC has access to major U.S. data sources, on-line databases, Internet sources, a reference collection and American magazines.
The IRC responds to queries by telephone, fax, e-mail and regular mail. Access to the facility is by appointment and the collection is not for circulation.
