About the National Clearinghouse

Due to lack of funding, the National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities is currently available only as an archived site. As of September 1, 2012 no new content will be added or updates made. We regret the need to take such steps, but should funding become available, we look forward to reinvigorating NCEF and providing this valuable resource to the educational facilities community.

If you have questions or are an organization or company wishing to support the continued operation of this industry recognized resource please contact Institute President Henry Green (, 202-289-7800).


Drawn from NCEF's vast database of 19,000 records, subject-specific resource lists provide a quick path to 167 school facilities topics. Each continuously updated list includes descriptions of books, studies, reports, and journal articles, with links to online publications and related websites.

Here are some of the most popular topics:

Since 1998, the National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities has provided timely, comprehensive information on designing, building, and maintaining safe, healthy, high-performing schools -- from early childhood and K-12 to higher education. With over 23,000 resources, NCEF is used by 1.5 million visitors a year.

NCEF is a program of the National Institute of Building Sciences, a non-governmental, non-profit organization authorized by Congress to serve as an authoritative source of innovative solutions for the built environment.
