University of Connecticut University Libraries Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center

Laurie S. Wiseberg and Harry Scoble Human Rights Internet Collection

The Human Rights Internet Collection held in Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, University of Connecticut, contains thousands of human rights publications from around the world collected from 1977 to the present by Human Rights Internet, a non-governmental organization based out of Ottawa, Canada. The collection includes materials not found in any other libraries in North America, and includes publications in a variety of languages including English, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, Swedish, Chinese and Japanese.  Many publications are cataloged and searchable through HOMER, the library’s online public catalog.

Searching for Publications in the Human Rights Internet Collection

From the University of Connecticut Libraries home page, click below the search box on the link for Other HOMER Searches

Click on the "Advanced Search" tab.

Then, click "Set More Limits" in the lower right corner.  That will bring you to a new menu.  In the Location box, scroll down and select "Dodd/Archives & Special Collections", and then click "Set Limits."

That will take you back to the Advanced Search page.  If you know the title, change the drop down search menu to “Title” and type the title in the search box.  If you are looking to browse titles in the publications library, enter “Human Rights Internet Collection” (including the quotes) as a keyword search, which will generate a listing of over 10,000 titles.  If you are looking for materials on a particular location or subject, again use “Human Rights Internet Collection” as a Keyword, but in an additional keyword search box, enter additional search term, such as “Latin America” or “Kenya” or “women.”  This will help to narrow your results. 

Note:  Not all Human Rights Internet materials are currently cataloged in HOMER.  Please contact the curator if you need research assistance.
