IGO Search

IGO/NGO custom search engines

Welcome to the IGO/NGO custom search engine project.

The project was started by David Oldenkamp, International Documents Librarian at Indiana University (who's no longer at IU). The IGO search is done with GoogleCSE. The list of urls for the search came from the Northwestern University IGO site. For questions, comments, suggestions or to submit an IGO to add to the search, James Jacobs, Government Information Librarian at Stanford University.

What it is: Using Google Co-op, fed 415 base URLs of IGOs into the search engine. Here's the growing spreadsheet of IGO urls. When the search engine is used by a patron, the terms are searched across all of the websites, so if you have the core url:http://www.un.org/ in the database, the search engine will search all of the websites that share the core http://www.un.org/ URL. Here's the direct URL for the IGO Search Engine.

We've expanded the project to include a Nongovernmental Organization (NGO) custom search engine. Here's the spreadsheet of NGOs. Thanks to David Oldenkamp and Barbara Celone for their work on the NGO search engine. Sites were chosen based on their consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and also collated from University of Minnesota Human Rights Library, and Duke University Libraries' NGO Research Guide.

Here's the direct URL for the NGO Search Engine.
