IMO Library BW Collection

The GloBallast Programme is establishing a collection of reports, monographs, papers and other publications on all aspects of ballast water management and invasive marine species as part of a global information resource centre. This collection is held by the IMO library in London and can be accessed by either visiting the library (with prior appointment) or by identifying the publications required and establishing their availability from national sources.

Current holdings in the ballast water collection are listed below. The collection is expanding rapidly and the listing will be updated regularly.
