The Knowledge Exchange Library is made possible through a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL), the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), and NASWA’s member state workforce agencies.

With a focus on unemployment integrity resources, the Knowledge Exchange Library digital collections are developed and maintained in accordance with the Library's mission “to facilitate ease of access to research, materials, and other resources for state unemployment insurance agencies.” The Library functions as a dynamic and organized repository of information resources that promotes the message “everyone owns integrity,” and supports efforts to prevent, detect, and recover Unemployment Insurance (UI) improper payments. The Library is actively managed to maintain the quality and relevance of Library holdings, and to ensure it is responsive to the needs of the user community. The Library’s vision is to connect users with ideas, information, and inspiration for new initiatives in program integrity.
