United Nations History

United Nations Yearbook Series – Online Version

The United Nations Department of Public Information launched on 9 October 2008 the first ever online version of the Yearbook of the United Nations -- the Organization’s flagship research publication.  The new website provides free public access to the 59 volumes of the Yearbook collection, detailing the work and achievements of the United Nations system over the first 60 years of its existence (1946-2006).  New volumes, and additional useful features, will continue to be added. The site incorporates a user-friendly search function, allowing users to locate any Yearbook reference using key words, phrases or document symbols, by year or range of years.  Search results can be displayed in plain text or as a printable PDF file.  It is expected that the new website will not only serve as a strong research tool, but it will also help users better understand global issues as they affect them today.  It will broaden the Organization’s outreach to the public, increasing awareness of, and support for, the United Nations throughout the world.
