Let Renouf help you navigate the new world of international documents
Established in 1888, Renouf evolved into North America's leading distributor of governmental and international reports and documents. We have all experienced the rapid transition from print to online reports over the past few years and now the library community and the Inter Governmental Organizations are mostly phasing out the production and use of print publications.

Renouf has been servicing our partner's online products since their inception and is working with libraries and consortia throughout North America. We have found that the organizations have been flexible in their pricing and we are quite confident that we will be able to provide you with a price that meets with your budget.
United Nations launches their NEW UN iLibrary platform
We are pleased to announce that the United Nations selected Renouf as the primary North American distributor of their UN iLibrary and we would be delighted to introduce you what the new UN iLibrary platform has to offer. The UN has reduced the subscription price and is now providing United Nations Depository Libraries a 20% discount.
Why your library should have an international documents collection?
The current pandemic only highlights how the world is inter-connected. COVID 19 and its variants will not be irradicated until the majority of the world's population has been vaccinated.

Climate change is bringing on an ever-increasing number of severe weather events and it can only be reversed, if countries around the world all do their part.

The disruption in the trade and delivery of goods between countries has resulted in shortages that has upset manufacturing timelines worldwide.

There is no one country, no matter how big and powerful, that can resolve the many issues facing our world, on its own. Every country is unique in its own way and the only way we can overcome our differences is to take the time to learn more about each other. The International Documents section is the place that students and researchers can go and look for the common ground that ties the world together.

You will still find a selection of IGO print publications in our online bookstore and we will continue to do our best to fulfill your orders during these difficult and changing times.
