The International Monetary Fund is inviting academic, non-profit, and governmental institutions in developing countries to sign up for free access to the IMF eLibrary. This online resource contains the IMF's entire catalog of over 10,000 publications, covering macroeconomics, globalization, development, trade and aid, technical assistance, emerging markets, policy advice, and poverty reduction. It also contains the IMF's statistical databases, including International Financial Statistics, and allows users to access data reports and build their own queries.
Individuals in developing countries have been able to access IMF data free-of-charge for some time. This offer extends free access to non-profit institutions in the same countries, with the aim of supporting their analysis and economics research.
