United Nations Documents
About the collection
The United Nations documents collection at the University of Georgia Libraries includes documents published after 1973. The United Nations documents collection also includes documents published before that date if they are part of a continuing series, such as the United Nations Statistical Yearbook.
The United Nations documents are shelved using the UN Series Symbol. The prefix UN is added to this symbol to complete the call number used in this collection.
The United Nations documents collection contains the publications of the five principal organs of the UN:
- General Assembly
- Economic and Social Council
- Security Council
- Trusteeship Council
How to access to United Nations documents:
- Paper and microfiche indexes covering various periods from 1946 to date are located in the United Nations reference collection in the Map and Government Information Library.
- Online access to documents published from 1946 to date is provided by Access UN (GALILEO Password required for off-campus access).
- Access to documents published from 1990 to date is also provided by a CD-ROM index which has been installed on one of the public access workstations located in the Main Reference department.
ProQuest Statistical Insight (GALILEO Password required for off-campus access), provides access to statistical information available from international intergovernmental organizations, including the United Nations. The documents and publications in this collection are for the most part not listed in GIL.
