We had a couple hundred volumes of International Monetary Fund Statistics at the library. They were shelved in various and sundry places because of Library of Congress classification conventions and space limitations at Falvey . Even for librarians and researchers who routinely used IMF, BOP or DOT, or IFS or GFS, it was confusing.
Now we have the complete time series for all IMF data (International Financial Statistics, Balance of Payments, Government Finance Statistics and Direction of Trade) online. Besides being much easier to find from the comfort of the library, your office or home, the native online version facilitates easy download and manipulation in Excel or several other statistical packages. Visit the library catalog, economics subject page, finance subject page or Databases A-Z for access.
