The new and improved Columbia International Affairs Online (CIAO) database

Columbia University Press announces the new and improved Columbia International Affairs Online (CIAO) database

The renowned international affairs database Columbia International Affairs Online (CIAO) has recently undergone a complete overhaul aimed at enhancing user experience. The new CIAO website features a redesigned user interface that standardizes the discovery and presentation of content and adds more video content, a live Twitter feed, and improved search functionality.

Other new features include: faceted browsing and refinement of search results based on normalized metadata, OpenURL and Shibboleth capabilities, and a CIAO YouTube channel, not to mention new partnerships with policy institutes and publishers, including Atlantic Council, Center for Migration Studies, Hudson Institute, the Soufan Group, Transparency International, and many more.

Of course, CIAO still retains the great features that users have always loved, including: the CIAO Atlas, featuring detailed maps and country data for 201 countries provided by the Economist Intelligence Unit; the monthly CIAO Focus, long considered an outstanding classroom tool for teaching salient issues in the field of international affairs; full-text e-books and journal content.

CIAO also boasts an advisory board that comprises of international affairs specialists and scholars from both the United States and abroad.

CIAO is a collaboration between Columbia University Press (CUP) and the Center for Digital Research and Scholarship (CDRS), part of the Columbia University Libraries / Information Services, combining the editorial talent of CUP on content and CDRS’s depth of knowledge in design and information architecture to create a new, enhanced, and responsive CIAO.
