International Governmental Organizations (IGOs) and Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs) are publishing a great deal of information on the web, but you will also find references (citations) to books, journal articles, or newspapers that are not readily available from a web link.
To find these sources, start by searching the library catalog.
Finding a book by title
Sample citation: Tate, Winifred. Counting the Dead: The Culture and Politics of Human Rights Activism in Colombia. Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007.
- From the library home page, go directly to the library catalog.
- Enter the first part of the title, Counting the Dead
- For print items, note the library location and call number
Finding a journal article from a citation (reference)
Sample citation: Avilés, William. “Paramilitarism and Colombia's Low-Intensity Democracy.” Journal of Latin American Studies 38, no. 2(May 2006): 379–408.
- In the library catalog, enter the title of the journal (not the title of the article)
- Use the drop-down menu to select Journal
- Open matching records to determine whether we have the year, volume and issue you need, in this case, 2006, volume 38, issues 2.
