The Woodrow Wilson School is primarily served by the Public and International Affairs & Population Research library, which is part of the University's extensive library system and is located in the basement of Wallace Hall. It provides reserve materials in support of both graduate and undergraduate studies, and houses a core collection of books, journals, and research materials that supplements the Social Sciences collections at Firestone.

The Ansley J. Coale Population Research Collection, serving the Office of Population Research, houses what is considered to be the premier collection of demographic materials in the country. The collection contains more than 40,000 bound volumes, as well as over 15,000 reprints, technical reports, manuscripts, and working and discussion papers. Sixty percent of the collection consists of worldwide statistical material (censuses and vital statistics). The collection also contains international censuses through 1990 on over 4,000 reels of microfilm. The collection's subjects encompass the areas of formal demography (fertility, mortality and immigration), population policy, family planning, epidemiology, child and public health, and family issues.


The Donald E. Stokes Library is located on the lower level of Wallace Hall.
