Does the Library digitize UN documents?
Last Updated: Nov 06, 2018
Yes, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library, in collaboration with the Library at the UN Office at Geneva, has a program to digitize historic documents of the United Nations between 1946-1993 in all six official languages.
The majority of Security Council documents, General Assembly Official Records, Economic and Social Council Official Records, and Trusteeship Council Official Records (including meeting records, annexes and supplements) are available on the Official Document System (ODS) and the Digital Library.
Individual documents may be digitized on-demand at the request of internal or external clients using the Library’s online contact form.
Please note that on-demand requests for digitization are handled in the order they are received. However, priority is given to requests from Member States and departments of the United Nations Secretariat. The time required to digitize paper documents varies with the number of pages and the condition of the document.
