Hugo van Hamel, Peace Palace Library reference librarian, has reached the age of retirement.

He is worldwide known as the compiler of the WTO-Bibliography, which originated from a bibliography prepared for the 1997 Centre of Studies and Research in International Law and International Relations on The World Trade Organization.

Over the years Hugo kept the bibliography meticulously up to date, turning it into an important source of research in the field of international trade law.

The bibliography is now part of the Research Guide on the World Trade Organization, a new instrument of the Peace Palace Library furthering the study of international trade law, combining the library collection with databases and internet-resources.

Thank you, Hugo and farewell!
