Collection Development Statement: Government Documents and Information

United Nations Depository

The Library was designated a United Nations depository in 1946. Official Records of the United Nations are available through the Readex microform collection – on microprint from 1946 through 1981 and on microfiche from 1981 to 2016. 

Since 2013, United Nations Headquarters (New York) is no longer disseminating printed UN publications & documents issued in New York to UN depository libraries. Other UN duty stations, including the UN Office in Geneva, the UN Office in Vienna, the UN Office in Nairobi, and the 5 UN regional commissions, continue to disseminate selected UN material to UN depository libraries, either in print or in digital format.
