There are small gaps in files from the beginning of 1985; however, files from that point onwards to 1988 are more complete.

External relations records

The External Relations service in the Cabinet of the Director-General was responsible for maintaining relations with member countries, non-member countries and organizations operating in the field of informatics (with or without formal cooperation agreements with the Organization). The service kept up-to-date information on the IBI's relations with these actors as well as reports on shared activities. The files consist primarily of correspondence exchanged between the IBI and the country or organization. Beyond letters, telegrams and telexes, the files include reports, brochures, and copies of agreements. The series has been arranged into three subseries:
-IBI/6/1/1 Governmental organization files
-IBI/6/1/2 Non-governmental organization files
-IBI/6/1/3 Country files


The Publications service of the IBI was responsible for the production and distribution of the Organization's periodicals, such as, for example, Agora, IBI Press and the IBI Newsletter. The service was also responsible for the official documents for conferences, the working documents and the studies published by IBI. The audio-visual unit produced video and audio recordings of conferences, as well as audio-visual material publicizing the activities of the organization. The series contains all types of publications created by the IBI (reports, working documents, conference documents, etc.) in either draft form or in printed, final form which was ready for distribution within or outside the organization.

Country files

The External Relations service of the Cabinet of the Director-General was responsible for relations with member and non-member states. Files are organized by country and mostly contain correspondence. Other possible documents attached to the correspondence include: reports, meeting documents, and cooperation agreements. The original order of the series was maintained - the files are roughly in alphabetical order as each country was assigned a number such as, for example: C.1 Afghanistan, C.2 Albania, C.3 Algeria, etc. In seems that in most cases files dating from before 1982 are missing. This is most apparent for countries which had many exchanges with the IBI, such as Italy, France, Spain and the United States of America, for example. Files for those countries represent the bulk of the series.

The subseries consists only of working documents from the Committee’s work in the 1980s.

The Committee was composed of former Presidents of the governing bodies of the IBI - the General Assembly or the Executive Council. The series contains correspondence and records of the meeting of the Committee.

Correspondances avec les organisations et pays membres et non membres de l'IBI
