The International Labour Organization (ILO) is "the organization responsible for drawing up and overseeing international labour standards. It is the only 'tripartite' United Nations agency that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all."


You can search for ILO publications in the library's OneSearch discovery layer. Some resources may also be available electronically via ebrary and will require a UH username and password for access. To search for ILO materials, type "international labour office" in the search box and select "Author(Last Name First)" in "search by". International Labour Organization publications in print can be found in our stacks under the call number "ILO".

As of December 2012, ILO no longer issues periodicals in print. To locate online publications (books, journal articles, working papers, training manuals) go to LABORDOC.
