The United Nations publications collection at the University of Georgia Libraries includes items published after 1973. The United Nations publications collection also includes items published before that date if they are part of a continuing series, such as the United Nations Statistical Yearbook.

The United Nations publications are shelved using the UN Series Symbol. The prefix UN is added to this symbol to complete the call number used in this collection.

The United Nations publications collection contains the publications of the five principal organs of the UN:

  • General Assembly
  • Economic and Social Council
  • Security Council
  • Secretariat
  • Trusteeship Council


How to access United Nations publications:

  • Paper and microfiche indexes covering various periods from 1946 to 2018 are located in the United Nations reference collection in the Map and Government Information Library.
  • The Official Documents System of the UN contains UN documents published from 1993 to the present; some documents published between 1946 and 1993 have been digitized and are also included. 
  • The United Nations Treaty Collection includes all treaties and international agreements "registered or filed and recorded by the Secretariat since 1945."
