Library, Archives and Documentation Service
In its main headquarters in Villaviciosa, SERIDA offers a broad collection of specialized literature on agriculture and food subjects.

Furthermore, part of its collection is made up of 155 titles of periodical publications in circulation, of which 35% are subscriptions, while the remainder are donations or exchanges.
The SERIDA library offers the following services:
- In-library consultation
- Bibliographic information and selective dissemination of information
- Personal and interlibrary loans
- Access to documents
- Document distribution
The library is open from 9am to 2pm , Monday through Friday.
Service for Bibliographic Information and Selective Dissemination of Information (S.D.I.)
The library attends any request for bibliographic information from researchers, private individuals, regional ministry personnel and diverse entities.
The selective dissemination of information is carried out by making up a summary bulletin, in hard copy until 2002, and now featured for consultation on the web.
Loans are limited to monographs and are free of charge to anyone upon proof of identification.
Access to documents
This service is directed exclusively at in-house users of the library. Since library funds do not cover the scientific information needs of SERIDA research personnel, a great deal of the outside documents requested, especially journal articles, are obtained through the libraries making up RIDA (Agricultural Information and Documentation Network) or through the central library services of the National Institute for Agricultural and Agri-food Research (INIA).
The library distributes SERIDA publications free of charge both to private individuals and to institutions.
