It is available in print on Ready Reference at the Reference Desk at call number KZ171 .M65 [year]. It is also available at the United Nations Treaty Collection.

  2. The Multilateral Treaty Calendar by Christian Wiktor provides citations to multilateral treaties for the period 1648-1995. Treaties are arranged in the index chronologically by date of signing.
