International Financial Statistics is produced by the International Monetary Fund.  The IFS database contains approximately 32,000 time series covering more than 200 countries and areas and includes all series appearing on the IFS Country Pages; exchange rate series for all Fund member countries, plus Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles; major Fund accounts series; and most other world, area, and country series from the IFS World Tables.
IUB's GIMSS (Government Information, Microforms and Statistical Services), 2nd Floor of the IUB Herman B Wells Library retains print copies of IFS from its beginning.  GIMSS was also a subscriber to IFS on CD and has an old edition of that product available.  GIMSS staff will be happy to assist with details about the use of the online or print editions of this resource.
