The University of Minnesota hosts a website dedicated to human rights law. Per the website, the library “houses one of the largest collections of more than sixty thousand core human rights documents, including several hundred human rights treaties and other primary international human rights instruments. The site also provides access to more than four thousand links and a unique search device for multiple human rights sites. ”

The Human Rights Library supports nine languages including Arabic, Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish. A researcher just beginning their quest to find documents may want to look at the extensive topic guides or bibliographies/research guides. It should be noted that while the site has an amazing amount of information, it appears the “Human Rights in the News” section has not be updated in some time.

Another website worth checking is the Human Rights Law Research Guide of Georgetown University Law Library. The site obviously references specific holding at Georgetown, but offers a wealth of additional information.
