OECD iLibrary is the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) online library of statistical databases, books, and periodicals. It parallels the print output of this international governmental organization (IGO) whose publications and statistical output represent the roughly 30-member nation states which share a commitment to democratic government and the market economy and which form this IGO. With active relationships with some 70 other countries, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society, the OECD has a global reach. Its materials focus on economic and social issues from macroeconomics, to trade, education, ageing society, communication and information technologies, energy, development, and science and innovation.
Includes a generic search of all publications as well as separate search interfaces for books, periodicals, and statistics. Working papers, reference materials, and "At a Glance" publications such as the OECD Factbook can also be browsed separately.
