The library’s collection is always evolving as more resources become available online. The majority of the library’s collection consists of the official records of the General Assembly, Security Council and Economic & Social Council from 1946 to the present. The official records of these bodies include meeting records, annexes (documents by agenda item number issued as an adjunct to the meeting record), supplements (principal reports prepared for consideration at a session), and resolutions.
The library holds the full collection of the UN Yearbook, an exhaustive overview of the work of the organization from year to year.
A selection of publications on topics such as human rights, peacekeeping drug control and statistical reference fill out the library’s collection.
