United Nations Data Access System (UN-data)
The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) launched on 20 February 2008 a new internet based data service for the global user community. It brings UN statistical databases within easy reach of users through a single entry point. Users can now search and download a variety of statistical resources of the UN system.
“UN Member States on the Record”
The Dag Hammarskjöld Library launched this research tool on 13 November 2009. The site is about UN Documents related to UN Member States. It provides links to selected UN databases, websites, and other information resources, in order to make the record of Member States' activities at the UN more accessible. Information available for each Member State includes: the key documents related to its membership in the UN; statements made before the principal organs; draft resolutions sponsored; periodic reports submitted on Human Rights conventions, and more. Running behind this new research tool are pre-set searches on multiple databases maintained by the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. A single click links to the most accurate, up-to date results, and yet also includes extensive historic coverage. Full text documents are linked in all official languages of the UN. Based on frequently asked questions, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library developed this tool to highlight the work and actions of each individual Member State and to consolidate information scattered in multiple databases to one user-friendly resource. This opens the rich primary research resource of UN documents to anyone who can browse the web.
