ILO launches electronic library collection of over 1,000 publications

The International Labour Office last week announced the availability of a new
electronic library that will simplify access to essential ILO publications on
issues concerning the world of work.

The collection, called ILO Insight, is a fully searchable archive of over 1,000
publications covering such issues as labour, employment, social protection,
women at work, occupational safety and health, child labour, management,
training, labour statistics and more.

The ILO has partnered with MyiLibrary, a company specializing in online
content, to create this large and diverse collection. Available on a
subscription basis, it includes key ILO books, monographs, official documents
of the annual International Labour Conference, complete text of Conventions and
Recommendations, reports, working papers, codes of practice and more. Many of
the publications are offered in French and Spanish as well as English.

Recent publications included in the collection are "A Fair Globalization:
Creating opportunities for all", the report compiled by The World Commission on
the Social Dimension of Globalization and the first systematic attempt to deal
with social dimensions of globalization. "HIV/AIDS and Work: Global estimates,
impact and response" which provides global projections of the impact of
HIV/AIDS on the world of work, as well as other past and current Reports of the
Director-General including "Organizing for Social Justice" and "Working out of
Poverty".

The collection will be updated monthly and provide subscribers with immediate
access to the latest information and research from the ILO.
