The International Environment Library Consortium (IELC) is a licensing partnership for special libraries in nonprofit organizations and government agencies working on conservation and environmental issues.

We provide our members with affordable licensing opportunities for major research products, and serve as a networking and research hub for environmental librarianship.

Founded in 2009 by the World Wildlife Fund, World Resources Institute, Wildlife Conservation Society, and The Nature Conservancy, the IELC accepts members from across the field of environmental conservation.
