Bevans U.S. Treatys and Other International Agreements of the United States of America, concocted by Charles Bevans, is a 13-volume collection, considered the most comprehensive collection of contracts and other agreements concluded by the United States from 1776 to 1950. Volumes 1 to 4 of this compendium contain the text of multilateral treaties in chronological order and after the signing date. Volumes 5 to 12 contain the text of bilateral treaties in alphabetical order by country. Volume 13 contains indices by country and theme. The world`s most comprehensive online collection of U.S. image-based contracts and other international agreements can be accessed in HeinOnline`s library of contracts and agreements. This database contains more than 18,000 records of contracts and agreements in which the United States has participated and also provides a very powerful indexing tool, unmatched by any other online database of the U.S. treaty. Entry-into-force contracts (TIF) are an instrument for indexing research on existing contracts and agreements. The TIF, published annually since 1955 by the Department of Foreign Affairs, provides a brief summary of all bilateral and multilateral agreements and other bilateral agreements that are considered to be in effect for the United States from January of each year. Bilateral agreements are categorized by country and categorized by country by theme, while multilateral treaties are categorized by theme.
HeinOnline contains all previously published TIF volumes. HeinOnline not only contains images from the pages of all the published and implemented treaties and agreements in which the United States participated, but also contains actual side images of thousands of unpublished treaties and agreements identified by U.S. National Archives and Records Administration records, U.S. Senate contract documents, the Freedom of Information Act, and several other official U.S. government sources. Finally, there are also treaties and agreements that are no longer in force, a feature that makes the HeinOnline contract library indispensable to a vast American expanse.
