Library and databases


Literature on international trade issues

The WTI library is combined with that of the Institute of European and International Economic Law (IEW), providing an excellent collection of literature on international trade issues.

Sections and opening hours

The library lends books strictly in-house and is divided into three sections: monographs, periodicals, and loose-leaf. In addition, it houses a collection of reports and decisions by the European Court of Justice as well as a wide variety of WTO-related materials. Through close cooperation with the University of Bern, the WTI's infrastructure provides extensive opportunities for e-research, including access to a large number of online journals, trade-related law sources and electronic databases. Students, research fellows and faculty benefit from subscriptions to these databases, some of which are also available on CD-ROM. 

The library is managed by Yvonne Motzer and is staffed on Tuesdays from 10am until 12 noon and on Wednesdays between 12 noon and 2pm.
