Subscriptions and prices

  • On January 1, 2020, the IMF made the eLibrary platform free to all users as part of its long-standing commitment to supporting research and public awareness. No IPs or registrations are required for access, although some features of the IMF sites require users to create a personal account. There are no longer any fees for the use of the IMF eLibrary.

Print Publications and the IMF Bookstore

  • Most IMF publications, including books, analytical papers, periodicals, reports, and other collections, can be purchased in print from the IMF Bookstore.

Corrections log

Corrections and revisions made after publication are incorporated into the electronic editions available on the IMF eLibrary. Visit the corrections page to access detailed log files for specific publications.

MARC FAQs

  • Do I need to download the complete file of MARC records every time, or is there a change/add/delete file? Both the complete file and a change/add/delete file are available.
  • How often do you update MARC records, and how will I know when there is an update? MARC records are updated monthly and noted in the news section. If you subscribe to the news RSS on the homepage, you will be notified automatically.
