A guide to the official publications collections held within the Cambridge University Libraries.

World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is a self-funding agency of the United Nations. It was set-up in 1967 by a convention signed in Stockholm for the purpose of creating a "global forum for intellectual property services, policy, information and cooperation". Older documents may use the name Organisation Mondiale de la Propriété Intellectuelle (OMPI).

Additionally, the Squire Law Library stocks a vast amount of material on intellectual property generally.


WIPO-Lex is an extensive global database hosted on the WIPO website. It is free to use and includes WIPO treaties but also laws and regulations of members states relating to intellectual property.
