Our Digital Collections

The Dag Hammarskjöld Library is building its digital collections.

High quality subscription databases such as The Economic Intelligence Unit, OECD iLibrary, and Hein Online offer access to thousands of intelligence reports, e-journals, articles and e-books on many topics of interest to delegates and staff.

The Digital Library, currently under development, will provide access to and safeguard many digital items that form the UN's institutional memory. The Digital Library will include UN documents, key UN publications series, and landmark collections, such as the Index to Proceedings (ITPs), and Oral History interviews.
