Government Information: International Documents

The IUB Libraries collects materials from hundreds of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). The Libraries have been a Depository Library for United Nations documents since May 1969. The Libraries continue to collect IGO materials in print, though many publications are now received electronically as part of subscription databases or for free from the IGO individual websites.

IGO and NGO Web Search Engines:

IGO Search (Yearbook of International Organizations):

From the publisher: "Allows you to search through contents of websites of all intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), comprising over 3000 bodies including the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Bank, etc." Access via:
Yearbook of International Organizations (look for the IGO Search tab).

IGO Search Engine (Google-based):

This is an experimental web search (created by David Oldenkamp) that you can use to find information from intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) such as the United Nations, World Bank, IMF, and related organizations. 
Google Search (using 355 core IGO urls):

Swicki Search (using over 100 core IGO urls):

NGO Web Search:
Search of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) websites. Sites were chosen based on their consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and also collated from University of Minnesota Human Rights Library, Duke University Libraries' NGO Research Guide, and the World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations (WANGO).
