The Library's collection is freely available to be searched from any computer with access to the Internet, through two main sources.

The United Nations Digital Library contains official UN materials:

  1. Documents and open access publications: UN documents (1979-):
  2. Voting data: voting information on resolutions adopted by the General Assembly and the Security Council starting in 1946;
  3. Speeches: speeches made in the General Assembly (from 38th session, 1983-), the Security Council (1983-), the Economic and Social Council (1983-) and the Trusteeship Council (from 1982-1994).
