Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents... Navigating the World Trade Organization (WTO): Locating and Opening Doors

  • April 22, 2021

  • Online

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association and the American Library Association Government Documents Round Table welcome you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free. This webinar will provide insight into how to engage trade research with the World Trade Organization. Historically, how to approach research with the World Trade Organization has been very vague. This session will provide an overview of the way that the World Trade Organization works (which will explain some of this vagueness), the materials and ways that one can engage trade research with the WTO, and a demonstration of how to search accessible collections. This webinar will be of use to those who have found this kind of research particularly challenging, to those who have always wanted to know more about the World Trade Organization, and to those who would like some insights into challenges facing the World Trade Organization.

We will meet online on Thursday, April 22nd from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link:

Presenter: Katherine Rewinkel El-Darwish is the Librarian for the Library of the World Trade Organization. She earned her Master in Library and Information Sciences from San Jose State University and her Bachelors degree in English with a minor in German from Lafayette College. Prior to working at the World Trade Organization, Katherine also worked at the United Nations Library and Archives Geneva, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, and the International Labour Organization. Katherine is primarily responsible for technical systems and cataloguing, but also provides support for research and reference. Katherine maintains the WTO library blog, which can be found at

We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page at!-Webinars.
