We are pleased to announce that the United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) https://digitallibrary.un.org/ is now available and can be accessed globally free of charge. A result of the successful collaboration between the Dag Hammarskj÷ld Library (DHL) at UN Headquarters and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform uses innovative open source technology to provide access to UN-produced materials in digital format. Content will be added continuously and enhancements to the system will be rolled out on a regular basis.
The new system, which offers easy access to UN documents, maps, speeches, voting data, as well as non-sales publications, will help global researchers find the UN information they need, quickly and accurately. It provides one point of access to UN information - current and historical.
Phase 1 of the UNDL incorporates digital content from the databases in UNBISnet http://unbisnet.un.org/ and the Official Document System (ODS) https://documents.un.org/prod/ods.nsf/home.xsp - mainly official UN documents, speech and voting records, as well as some maps. The UNDL will also link to open access UN content.
