Finding Data & Documents

You can find many of the sources listed here, and others, on your own through a search engine. Follow some of these tips to find more sources:

 

  • Search in the language if you can. While the webpage may be available in English, there is almost always more information in the original language. 
  •  
  • In Google, search the country-level domain using "site:". For example, to search the Russian internet you would search "site:.ru"
  •  
  • Search using Yandex or a popular search engine from the country. 
  •  
  • In Google, search for PDFs or CSV files containing reports, documents, and data or other files using "filetype:". For example, to search for PDFs on the Russian government site you would search: "site:government.ru filetype:pdf" 

 

On the left-hand side, use the "General Sources" button to explore multi-country or international resources. Use the "Sources by Country" button to look for open data, government data, and government & legislative resources in a specific country. Periodically links will go out of date, please inform the librarian associated with this page if you encounter a dead link.
