The State Department publication Treaties in Force (TIF) will tell you if the United States has ratified a particular bilateral or multilateral treaty. Bilateral treaties are arranged in Section 1 by country and subject. Section 2 arranges multilateral treaties by subject. TIF can be found at the State Department's website.
It is also available in Hein Online in the Treaties and Agreements Library.
It is also available in Lexis Nexis in the USTIF file.
Status information about a particular treaty that the United States is a party to can also be found in the Treaties and International Agreements Online database available here. Once you have located the treaty in the database click the "Document Details" link to get information about the treaty and citations to official sources if available.
