The United Nations Digital Library- UNDL


The United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available! A result of the successful collaboration between the UN Dag Hammarskjöld Library and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform provides access to UN-produced materials in digital format free of charge. It is built on open source technology developed by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and encompasses administration and open source metrics. The system incorporates content presented in various “stand-alone databases” such as the UN Bibliographic Information System (UNBISNET) and the UN Official Document System (ODS) – almost 900,000 records and counting. It provides one global point of access to UN information – current and historical. Enhancements will be rolled out on a regular basis.
