Model United Nations: Resources

Document Search

Official Document System (ODS)

United Nations official document system: provides full text search of documents issued since 1993; resolutions of all principal organ & Security Council plenary documents since 1946 ; older documents are added regularly. Includes the Daily Journals of New York and Geneva.

Bibliographic Records

UNBISnet - Bibliographic Records

UNBISnet is the catalogue of the UN Library in New York. In addition to the library's holdings it accesses multilingual versions of UN documents (1993-present), citation to documents (1979-present) ; metadata and online links to older documents are added regularly.

Index to Proceedings

The Index to Proceedings (ITP) is an invaluable series, especially useful for research on matters prior to 1979. It provides citation to the parliamentary documentation of the principal organs.

Each index has two parts:

  1. a subject index to all the documents issued for the body, by agenda item;
  2. an index to speeches delivered.

Ready Reference

UN Info Quest (UN-I-QUE) provides citation to the symbols for documents throughout the history of the organization: each record within UN-I-QUE is historically comprehensive. UN-I-QUE does not provide citation to all documents, but to certain documents of a recurrent nature.
