Questions about the General Assembly? Ask DAG!
Ask DAG: Frequently Asked Questions about the UN
Friday 22 September 2017

Topics: Resources

Where can I find voting information for resolutions? What are the opening dates of the UN General Assembly sessions? Where can I get the electronic version of the "Delegates' Handbook"? Did the General Assembly ever consider UFOs?

Answers to these questions and many more are available via the Dag Hammarskjöld Library’s Ask DAG service, accessible in English, French and Spanish.

Browsing the Ask DAG questions is also a good way to learn more about the Organization. You might find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had! (If you’re still wondering about the UFO question for example, you can find the answer here)

You can browse almost 700 frequently asked questions and find answers about all things UN, including over 300 related to the work of the General Assembly. If you can’t find what you are looking for, submit your question via our Ask DAG service and a librarian will respond to you.

United Nations Digital Library
Thursday 18 May 2017

Topics: Digital Collections, Resources

The United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available! A result of the successful collaboration between the 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. At the same time it is a major service for the long-term preservation of the Organization’s collective memory incorporating the latest relevant international standards. It is built on open source technology developed by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). We now have the ability to bring together the diverse institutional heritage of the United Nations and preserve it for future generations.

We’d like to thank all the UN libraries who helped with the development of the United Nations Digital Library, in particular the ESCWA and OHCHR libraries for their translation assistance.
