Can researchers and general public contact the Dag Hammarskjöld Library?
Last Updated: Jul 29, 2016
The Dag Hammarskjöld Library at United Nations Headquarters in New York is a library designated to facilitate the work of the United Nations and focuses mainly on the needs of the UN Secretariat and diplomatic missions.
The library provides research assistance to the general public and researchers on matters related to the UN and its documentation. While we aim to answer questions about the UN from external researchers, this is not our primary mandate and our capacity to do extensive research is limited.
Prior to contacting the Dag Hammarskjöld Library researchers and general public should first consult with:
- university libraries
- public libraries
- United Nations Information Centres
- United Nations Depository Libraries
