International Trade: The GATT Digital Library

Those who are interested in the subject of international trade and its history will find the following to be a valuable resource. The GATT Digital Library is a project of Stanford University Libraries, Academic Information Resources, and the World Trade Organization. This digital library offers more than 30,000 public documents and 300 publications of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). GATT produced almost 60,000 documents during the years of its existence (1947-1994). Not every document has been derestricted, but additional documents will appear as they become available.

The public documents include reports, studies, and meeting records that represent a range of subjects relevant to international trade. Each document has a unique symbol number. Users may search for documents by symbol number, title word, date, full-text keyword, or specific GATT body. Those who wish to browse the library will find the documents organized by the issuing body.
