Some sources for commodity price data include:

The International Monetary Fund's International Financial Statistics, online via the IMF eLibrary and in print (call number REF HG 3881 .I627). When you connect to IMF eLibrary, look for the IMF Data link at the very top of the page.  Click there to access data that you can download.  An "IMF Data" link further down the page will connect you to pdf versions of IMF statistical publications.  Click on the attachment below for a screenshot illustrating how to find commodity prices.

EIU Databases - select "Country Data" or "Market Indicators and Forecasts". Click on Commodities, and "list of series names" and look for "Prices".

Proquest Statistical Datasets  Contains data from more than 70 source organizations. For help using Statistical Datasets, see these helpful hints.

A database that may help you discover a source, and sometimes includes links to fulltext, is ProQuest Statistical Insight

If you have trouble finding what you need or using any of these sources, please contact a SAIS research librarian in person Mon-Fri 9-5, by phone 202-663-5900, or via email.
