New UN Documentation Research Guide! We have updated and expanded the UN Documentation Research Guide. Beginning in April 2013, the old guide will not be updated, with the exception of the current General Assembly and Security Council resolutions tables. |
- August 2010 : The General Assembly Resolution tables have been updated. All sessions now include complete information: Resolution symbol, Committee, agenda item, Meeting Record symbol (with links where available), Draft Resolution symbol, and title. The access page has been updated to include links to all sessions on one page.
- December 2009 : Peacekeeping Frequently Requested Documents has been updated to improve the searches and add links to searches for UN maps.
- April 2009 : A special chapter on Disarmament introduces the main UN bodies concerned with the topic and highlights the major UN documentation in the area of disarmament. The chapter includes information about the outcomes of the General Assembly's special sessions on disarmament.
- September 2008 : The page on Treaties
has been updated to reflect the changes to the online United Nations Treaty
- June 2008 : A special chapter on the UN regular budget
has been added to the Research Guide. The major budget documents and
the key UN bodies related to the programme planning and budget process
are introduced; the chapter also provides symbol patterns for documents
and search tips for the major UN databases.
- May 2007 : To enable researchers to identify key UN
bodies working in the area of the environment
as well as related documentation, a special
chapter has been added to the Research Guide which
also includes: a listing of important meetings which have taken place
over the years; full text links to multilateral treaties; a listing of
key reference tools issued by the Organization; and tips for
identifying environment documentation
using UNBISnet and the Official Documents System of the United Nations
