GDF Online contains statistical data for the 138 countries that report public and publicly-guaranteed debt to the World Bank Debtor Reporting System. The database covers external debt stocks and flows, major economic aggregates, and key debt ratios as well as average terms of new commitments, currency composition of long-term debt, debt restructuring, and scheduled debt service projections. Data selection screens are intuitive and easy to use. Results can be scaled, indexed against a particular year, viewed by percentage change, and charted. Data can also be exported in standard formats like Excel. The World Bank e-Library is an electronic portal to the World Bank's full-text collection of books, reports, and other documents. It brings together in a fully indexed and cross-searchable database, over 1,200 titles published by the World Bank during the past several years and every new title. The portal is hosted by Ingenta. Libraries subscribing to the World Bank e-Library have the option of adding the e-Library Print Archive to their subscription. This print option costs $2,500 per year, including shipping and handling, and represents an estimated 65-70% discount off of list price. This plan allows libraries to offer both print and electronic copies of World Bank titles to their reserachers and to maintain both their print and electronic collections at an affordable price. As a single-invoice subscription (invoiced either together with the e-Library or separately), it also allows libraries to budget more effectively and to reduce the time and costs associated with multiple invoices and blanket standing orders. Subscribing institutions will receive one copy of each of the 150-200 books published by the World Bank during the subscription year.
