In what language(s) does the United Nations library deposit come?
Last Updated: Aug 23, 2018
A United Nations deposit is available in the six official languages of the United Nations, namely Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. Normally, the entitlement is limited to material in one official language.
Not all of publications appear in Arabic, Chinese or Russian. Depositories where the national language is Arabic, Chinese or Russian may therefore choose either English, French or Spanish as a language of deposit, but they will also receive one copy of each publication available in their national language.
