About the Library 

The IBFD Library and Information Centre is an internationally recognized research facility in the field of cross-border taxation. Our exhaustive collection comprises source materials from almost every country in the world, encompassing more than a century’s worth of information. Many of our resources are also available in their original languages.

We collect, store and provide access to documentation covering all aspects of international taxation. Our Library and Information Centre is used both by IBFD staff, students and researchers, consultants, law firms, advisory firms, companies and governments seeking information on international taxation topics, tax structuring and tax management. We welcome growing numbers of visitors from around the world.

You can explore the various collections and resources available and learn more about our library services through the IBFD Library Portal.
