American Society of International Law (ASIL): Electronic Resource Guide
The Electronic Resource Guide, often called the ERG, has been published online by ASIL since 1997. Systematically updated and continuously expanded, the ERG is designed to be used by students, teachers, practitioners, and researchers as a self-guided tour of relevant, quality, up-to-date online resources covering important areas of international law. The ERG also serves as a ready-made teaching tool at graduate and undergraduate levels.
Columbia University Research Guide Public International Law
This guide is designed to enable you to do research in international law. It will introduce you to the basic concepts, institutions, texts, and research tools and give you a framework to knit these together as needed to solve individual problems. Underlying the guide is the principle that in order to understand what you need to find, you have to understand the institutions which are in a position to "create" international law. The guide is not intended to teach substantive law, but the framework within which the law is disseminated.
