Information about UN material

If you need more information about the UN and different types of UN publications, you can use the UN research guide.

Search UN document symbols

Each UN document is labeled with a unique document symbol, such as A/RES/67/1. All translations of a document have the same symbol.

If you have a document symbol, you can use it to find the document in the Official Document System (ODS).

You can also access the document directly by visiting http://undocs.org/ followed by the document symbol, such as http://undocs.org/A/RES/67/1.
