We are pleased to announce that the United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available and can be accessed globally free of charge.  A result of the successful collaboration between the Dag Hammarskjöld Library (DHL) at UN Headquarters and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform uses innovative open source technology to provide access to UN-produced materials in digital format. Content will be added continuously and enhancements to the system will be rolled out on a regular basis. The new system, which offers easy access to UN documents, maps, speeches, voting data, as well as non-sales publications, will help global researchers find the UN information they need, quickly and accurately. It provides one point of access to UN information – current and historical.

Phase 1 of the UNDL incorporates digital content from the databases in UNBISnet and the Official Document System (ODS) - mainly official UN documents, speech and voting records, as well as some maps.  The UNDL will also link to open access UN content.

What can I find in the United Nations Digital Library?
- UN documents and open access publications
- UN voting data, maps and speeches
- Content in 6+ languages

Which system features are there?
- Linked data between related documents such as resolutions, meeting records and voting
- Refine searches by UN body, agency or type of document
