The two biggest foreign country government collections and the most heavily used ones are the U.S. and U.K. collections. Please check separate research guides for these two collections. 

Coverage: please click to the CODOC country list to see the countries where materials are being collected.

Kinds of material: parliamentary (not statutes except for US and UK and a few other countries), statistical especially statistical yearbooks for the country (some going back to the 19th century) and collections of historical documents on foreign policy. 

Except for the statistical yearbooks, documents on foreign policy, UK and US materials, we keep most of our foreign countries materials in storage.
