When submitting a request for documents and/or UN publications claim form, a UN Depository Library must determine the provenance for each missing item and group them according to their place of issuance in the claim form. Please refer to FAQ "What tools can a UN depository library use to determine missing items, document symbols and sales publication numbers ?" for help.

A separate claim form should be submitted according to where the items are issued and where the claim will be processed. Please consult the following list of UN distribution points and their corresponding claimable items:
