Lincoln Resource Center (LRC), originally known as the U.S. Information Service (USIS) library, opened its doors to the Malaysian public on February 15, 1950 and continues to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information about U.S. policies, education, geography, history, society, culture, etc.

Named after President Abraham Lincoln, the LRC provides reference and referral services electronically on all aspects about the United States of America. Fields covered include foreign affairs, U.S. political and social processes, English language teaching and learning, communications, economics and trade, U.S. higher education, environmental protection, and arts and culture, among other topics. The LRC website http://malaysia.usembassy.gov/lincoln.html provides links to a range of other authoritative U.S. information resources.

The Lincoln Resource Center has partnered with several local public libraries to make available to the Malaysian public special Americana collections called Lincoln Corners. Today there are Lincoln Corners (LCs) in public libraries in Penang (in Seberang Jaya and George town), Kedah, Perak, Kelantan, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Sarawak, and Johor.

The Lincoln Resource Center is located in the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur while the physically accessible Lincoln Corners are located outside the Embassy across Malaysia in the states and cities mentioned above.
