Borrow Books & More

Who can borrow books from the Dag Hammarskjöld Library?

Employees of the Permanent Missions, UN staff, interns, and consultants may borrow up to 10 items at the time. Circulating items can be checked out for 28 days. If you need additional time, you may call or visit the Library to renew your item(s).

Some materials may have shorter loan periods or may not be borrowed at all. Clients are permitted, however, to make photocopies of the following non-circulating items:

  • UN documents
  • Reference materials
  • League of Nations & Woodrow Wilson Collections materials

Anyone with a valid UN pass (including NGOs and media) can consult books, journals, official documents, or any other material on the library premises.

Only UN Secretariat staff and Permanent Mission staff can request materials through interlibrary loan.
