"Introducing the New"
IMF eLibrary Complete
As of January 1st, 2015, the IMF eLibrary collection is offered as a single configuration called "eLibrary Complete" at a significantly reduced price. The change is due to the fact that the IMF has decided to grant free access to their four statistical databases; International Financial Statistics (IFS) Balance of Payments Statistics (BPS), Government Finance Statistics (GFS) and Direction of Trade Statistics (DOT).

The new online only service includes the complete package of IMF Books and Analytical Papers, Periodicals and Reports, and the Annual Report on Exchange Arrangements and Exchange Restrictions (AREAER) databases. Institutional subscribers to eLibrary Complete will retain IP access and usage reporting across resources, including the Statistics data.
