IRC facilitates the creation, sharing and use of knowledge so that water and sanitation sector staff and organisations can better support poor men, women and children in developing countries to obtain water and sanitation services they will use and sustain. This is achieved by offering publications, training courses, advisory and education services, research and advocacy activities. IRC's library contains over 16,000 items, much of it is grey literature. The resources can be searched using the on-line database, which can be searched by subject, author, title, publisher, date and type of publication. It provides links to 1100 documents and Web pages on the Internet. Publications can be ordered online and some can be downloaded from the website.
