This resource is technically the online edition of a large multi-volume encyclopedia, and as such should not be included here (such resources are most fruitfully found via the library catalog along with any other editorially-similar materials, regardless of delivery medium). However, the scope and quality of this resource are sufficiently unique to set it apart as an extremely valuable online starting point for any research in public international law topics. This is published in partnership with Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Laws and International Law. The online version is actually expanded from its already monumental print fore-bearer. On-campus access is IP-range based, but for remote access click here for password.
