The Dag Hammarskjöld Library has created a series of research guides about UN documentation.
The research guides focus on the documentation of specific UN bodies, including the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council, the International Court of Justice, and the Secretariat.
Other research guides cover the documentation in selected popular subject areas. Topics include development, disarmament, environment, human rights, international law, peacekeeping and the UN budget.
Most research guides are available in English only, but selected key research guides are also available in the other five official languages of the United Nations – Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish.
