The United Nations Depository Library System was established by the United Nations in order to disseminate
its activities to the public by depositing its documents at various locations throughout the world.

libraries individually, and our institute is chosen as a deposit library of the World Trade Organization (WTO),
formerly known as the General Agreements on Tariff and Trade (GATT), and the International Maritime Organization
(IMO), making available almost all the publications of these agencies.
