UN in OU Library

The University of Oklahoma purchased the sale publications of the United Nations from 1945-1993. These documents have been cataloged into the Main Library and their records  are accessible through the library catalog.

There is an additional collection of Official UN Publications in the LSC Storage on HW 9. This collection contains the reports of the General Assembly, the Security Council, etc. The dates of the items range from 1945 - present. As of 2015, these items are in the process of being cataloged into the Main Library Catalog.

Make an appointment with the Government Documents Librarian for additional assistance on United Nations Research.

UN Holdings Online: The UN Documentation Database

As of 2005, the UN made its UN Documentation Database available for free online, through the UN web page. The UN Documentation Database covers all types of official United Nations documentation, beginning in 1993. Older UN documents are added to the system on a daily basis. The UN Documentation Database also provides access to the resolutions of the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, and the Trusteeship Council from 1946 onwards. The system does not contain press releases, UN sales publications, the United Nations Treaty Series, or information brochures issued by the Department of Public Information.
